With which startup projects are you currently involved?

None at this time, but have always dreamed of doing my own thing.

Which do you consider yourself: entrepreneur, developer, or investor? Or do you aspire to be one of the three? Let us know here:

I aspire to be an investor - that would be nice. However, at this time that would take winning the lottery. I would like to be an entrepreneur. I enjoy learning and trying new things. I haven't always been successful, but I do always learn something. I have also learned that if you don't ask, you will NEVER have a chance to hear yes.

What skills, knowledge or resources do you want to bring to our Verge community, and what are you looking to get out of it?

I have been in the intellectual property industry for almost 20 years, many of which have been spent as a private investigator. I have worked on civil and criminal cases involving trademark infringements and counterfeit goods. With my IP background and experience, I can assist new entrepreneurs and developers with creating and protecting their brand. Many new start-ups wait until they have a problem to find a solution, but there are many steps that should be taken from the beginning to establish a strong foundation when it comes to IP. In addition to assisting others, I am looking forward to meeting new people and hearing about their ideas.


I love new adventures and learning new things!
