Before joining HFZ, I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, with an emphasis in Aeronautics and a minor in Business Administration. During my time at Embry-Riddle, I took a specific interest in flight control systems and software, which I leveraged as a Software Engineer writing aerodynamics models for high-end, full-motion flight simulators. In addition to software, I gained hardware and integration experience with Embedded Controls work in both the Aerospace and Automotive industries.
I have always been fascinated by how things work, which led to a specific interest in intellectual property during my last year as an undergraduate student. I decided to pursue this interest by joining the law program at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law as an evening student while continuing to expand my engineering experience during the day.
At HFZ, I look forward to working side-by-side with the experienced and knowledgeable Attorneys, Patent Engineers, and Legal Professionals. I bring a diverse set of experience in software and control system design from a variety of differing applications along with my fundamental mechanical/physics-based knowledge to help protect the next generation of life-changing inventions for our clients.
