About Patents Integrated



I launched Patents Integrated with a vision of helping companies achieve their business goals by bridging the gaps between business, technical, and legal stakeholders.


Throughout my 20+ year career working with technology companies, I've so often seen companies struggle to balance the needs of three competing interests, namely:

  • Business (e.g., allocating limited financial resources),
  • Technical (e.g., developing an innovative, marketable product), and
  • Legal (e.g., risk mitigation and compliance).


These three interests CAN work together.


I understand the innovation lifecycle, from innovation, IP portfolio development and transactions, to patent assertion and monetization, because I've been responsible for all of these activities in my previous roles.  I've worked in a variety of settings, ranging from start-ups, a NASDAQ-traded company, a federal laboratory, a non-profit organization, and a patent assertion entity.  I speak the language of business leaders, technologists, and legal professionals -- and I can help interpret between these groups to make sure they are all working together to grow your company.


I hold a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering (Optics emphasis), an M.B.A., and a B.A. in Physics.  I'm also a Certified Licensing Professional, recognized by the Licensing Executives Society, as well as part of the IAM Strategy 300, which recognizes the top IP professionals as nominated by their peers.  I started working in patent prosecution in 1996, and I have been a practicing U.S. Registered Patent Agent since 2001.  I have native fluency in both English and Japanese, and I have extensive experience working and negotiating in Asia.


I specialize in creating and implementing practical action plans to ensure a company's business objectives are in alignment with their technology development and intellectual property (IP) strategies.

Leveraging my in-depth experience throughout the innovation lifecycle, I'm uniquely able to provide insights to help your company to grow and succeed.
