BIO :

I have over fourteen years of experience in the Intellectual Property field specializing in patents; with over eight years with the United States Patent and Trademark Office as a Patent Examiner. I’m passionate about the science of patent searching and have examined/analyzed patent applications in a wide range of subjects.

I grew up in Tampa, Florida. I enjoy both indoor and outdoor activities from traveling, cooking, and sports especially hiking/walking; my favorite hikes are along the beaches and the (easier) trails of the Grand Canyon. I’m a lifelong Florida sports fan, and a big supporter of the Tampa Bay Bucs and the Miami Dolphins of the NFL. I can also communicate fluently both verbally and in writing in Vietnamese.
