I am fascinated by the interaction between emerging technologies and the law, and I love working with entrepreneurs and professional creatives to help them execute on their ideas. With most clients, the goal is to prevent problems with business formation, effective contracts, trademark and copyright registrations, website terms of service, social media policies, and thoughtful business strategies. When a client brings me a problem or an idea, my goal is to find a way to say, “We can make that work.”

As an authority on internet and social media law, a blogger, and a professional speaker, I know it’s imperative that the law continues to be applied fairly and correctly to developments related to the internet and new technologies. Currently, I’m focused on helping companies comply with the various privacy laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Canada’s Anti-Spam Law (CASL).

Prior to law school, I worked in the mental health industry for nine years and was a Licensed Professional Counselor in Arizona. In my free time, I enjoy running, and spending time with my dog, and watching documentaries.
