I am an appellate, intellectual property, and technology lawyer, a blogger and columnist, and a podcast host.*
I practice appellate and technology law, primarily on a consulting basis. I have more fun than should be allowed hosting this WEEK in LAW and writing columns for The American Lawyer — both gigs that came my way due to the good graces and endorsements of folks I met online. Blogs I write or have written include Bag and Baggage, Lawgarithms (CBS Interactive/ZDNet), Between Lawyers (Corante), and The Industry Standard.
Though I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I now live in Newport Beach. While at UCLA (B.A. 1987), I majored in English and earned departmental honors for a thesis on the works of T.S. Eliot. After college, my interests took a more South Campus turn. I began studying computers and technological issues while I earned my law degree from Boalt Hall in Berkeley (J.D. 1990).
