If you asked him what he does for a living, David would simply say “I help protect technology and innovation.”
David has always had an interest in technology for as long as he can remember. After moving from Ohio to Los Angeles and working as an engineer in the aerospace industry for eight years, he decided it was time for a change and pursued a career in patent law.
“I like working with innovators and learning of new technologies and concepts early on, well ahead of the general public,” he says. “Reducing these technical concepts to written patent applications and arguing for their allowance with patent offices around the world is challenging and rewarding.”
Leveraging 25-plus years of experience, David works with clients to protect their innovations and to implement intellectual property strategies that increase company value and secure competitive advantages. Over the course of his career, he has represented clients in different industries and has worked on a variety of innovations with his clients, many of them in the medical device space.
Outside of work, David enjoys scavenging used record stores and thrift shops for albums to rebuild the vinyl collection he discarded years ago. During the fall, he is consumed by college football and is a diehard fan of his alma mater – The Ohio State University Buckeyes.
