I have published on such topics as surgical devices (lasers/ESU), fiber optics and interactive protective systems. I have testified 9 times on topics such as patent infringement/validity, misappropriation of trade secrets & unfair competition and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) matters.

Ultimately I transitioned into a serial entrepreneur having formed 6 companies with a variety of exits.
