I received my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University as part of the five-year Cooperative Engineering Education Program, alternating traditional coursework with hands-on experience in industry. My interest in patent law blossomed from my own experience inventing new products, and from my desire to continually learn about the latest technologies. I came to HFZ after working for more than a decade as a mechanical engineer in product development and manufacturing for the automotive and construction industries. My industry experience taught me firsthand about the innovation process and the value of attaining strong intellectual property protections.
At HFZ, I strive to help our clients meet their business goals through prosecuting high-quality patents.
