Welcome to my website. 

I’ve been an attorney since 1984 and handled negotiations, arbitrations, commercial transactions, licensing, promotions, sweepstakes, copyright, trademarks, Internet and other media issues and raising two amazing young men.  I teach business law and intellectual property at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. I also have a private legal and business practice helping artists, designers and small businesses protect, license and otherwise develop their unique properties. Some of those small businesses have turned into large businesses, but we’ve grown together.
