Service Description

I can write anything from short blog entries to multipage white papers. I have written blog entries on intellectual property, entrepreneurship, science and technology. I have written white papers on technical intellectual property transactions and patent portfolio building. I can communicate any message involving law, business or technology to any audience: tenured academics, practicing lawyers, the informed public or high school students.

I also have enormous background in technical writing. Beyond scientific and legal scholarship I have written contracts in multiple countries, patent applications, video scripts, marketing copy and sales literature.

I am also an experienced educator. I created a one semester class on intellectual property and regulatory law for a graduate-level business program, which I taught for three years. I also created the bioentreprenurship program at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The course combines research, clinical and allied health students to learn how to take discoveries in the laboratory and turn them into companies. During my graduate studies, I taught a course for the nursing program on animal biology. At the University I regularly contribute to teach faculty, students and even regional students about what happens with scientific discovery after you discover.

Apart from writing, I also provide professional services. I have evaluated hundreds of new inventions arising from university and hospital-based...
