How I got here | I am an electrical engineer, entrepreneur, and prolific inventor with a lot of strategy, partnering, and licensing experience. I became a Patent Agent when my startup had more ideas than money and picking fewer ideas to protect was not an option. Joining Coca-Cola and working on amazing innovations I realized development teams often need a team member dedicated to cultivating the entrepreneurial spirit, facilitating a process of harvesting good ideas, and turning those ideas into a competitive advantage. Development teams love the process and engagement. After all who doesn't like getting their ideas heard and their name on a patent.
How I can help you | So today I work with companies, embedding with development teams to educate about inventing and facilitate workshops to harvest ideas. I use strategies to link trends and insights with captured ideas to super-size opportunities and uncover hidden possibilities and new business models. Finally, I collaborate with the development teams to draft patent applications protecting innovations for the company using clever ways to bundle ideas and create high value patent portfolios.
