Emerging companies face so many challenges in getting their products to market. I help entrepreneurs and growing businesses in the telecommunications and technology space clear government hurdles. If you need an effective strategy for communicating with the FCC, FAA, or other federal entity, I have the regulatory experience and insight to help you move forward successfully. I know the changing regulations and keep in touch with the policymakers whose decisions shape your industry. I’ve represented and advocated for dozens of clients who have developed wireless technologies, including many types of unlicensed and IoT-connected devices. I frequently assist clients with issues related to spectrum allocation, regulation, and licensing. Recent regulatory developments — such as the allocation of spectrum for 5G — will speed time to market for some new telecommunications products. I’ll help you make the most of your opportunities.

Fun facts

My favorite website is…

TILT Parenting, my go-to resource for advice on all things “twice exceptional,” which helps me raise my bright but differently wired son. It’s great that technology can connect parents worldwide.
