Q&A
  • What previous experiences, prior to your work at Balch, influence your practice?

    Prior to attending law school, I worked as a business technology consultant for IBM Global Business Services in the retail and healthcare sectors. I traveled the country regularly to assist clients in implementing technology solutions to meet their business needs. This unique experience working with numerous large corporations, gave me insight into the proper balance between business demands and desires, understanding the bottom line, and providing helpful legal guidance.

    In addition, my background in computer science and computer engineering predisposes me to an interest in intellectual property. I don't shy away from technical, science-intense matters.
