I am a practical and creative legal advisor to entrepreneurs, emerging enterprises and investors for business, technology and entertainment transactions that reward innovation and capital risk. I have extensive experience in the structuring of business entities to protect, license, finance and commercialize technology, digital media, intellectual property, entertainment and financial assets. I have senior management experience in turn around technology company environment with management responsibility for product development, distribution and marketing functions, and I advise many emerging and established companies as an outside general counsel.

And what prevents me from doing that and brightens my day is a long run, a call from my daughters. a meeting with a client or a friend, playing the drums ( I am an ancient rock and blues drummer), reading about dinosaurs or some other dorky anthropological or ancient historical matter . And even after hundreds of financing transactions, . I still enjoy the thrill of closing a private equity or entertainment transaction for a a client with a disruptive technology or entertainment asset
