I am a civil litigator versed in all aspects of commercial and business disputes, with a particular focus on intellectual property litigation.

From March 2013 to March 2015, I lived and worked in Seoul at Korea's largest entertainment and media conglomerate, CJ Entertainment, where I managed all of the company's overseas disputes.  Both professionally and personally, it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.  I particularly enjoyed viewing the world from an entirely different perspective, and through the lens of a culture that I only previously had a superficial understanding of.  It also made me a better communicator, and in many ways, a better lawyer.

Today, my focus is on helping Asian companies--particularly media companies--increase their global footprint by knocking down barriers to innovation and by helping them protect their IP.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing tennis.
