I founded Gr8BigIdeas to help entrepreneurs, startups, and innovative companies patent their ideas.
I am a registered US Patent Agent with more than 24 years of patent experience, a serial entrepreneur, and an electrical engineer with embedded systems and software expertise.
I have startup experience raising more than $120 million in funding and a successful exit on NASDAQ. In my startup, I invented a wireless cashless payment technology that is widely used today. I then became a member of Coca-Cola R&D. At Coke, I led a team of innovators in the design of cold drink equipment. One such innovation was the Coca-Cola Freestyle dispenser. After Freestyle, I successfully grew Coca-Cola’s open innovation program. The program scouted for technologies to meet Coke's business needs worldwide. I was a prolific inventor, in my startup and corporate innovation endeavors, with more than 115 patents. Here is a list of my US patents.
I now call the tech community home, working from an innovation lab outside Atlanta with entrepreneurs and startups drafting and prosecuting patents to help them protect their inventions. Contact me to talk about patenting your idea.
