More about me I grew up in the heart of the sleepy town of Austin, Texas. By the time I was a toddler, I knew I would become an engineer. I excelled in learning, testing, and sports from elementary to college. While in college, my priorities shifted from personal excellence to social excellence. I made it through, but not without some sacrifices. Professional work started at Motorola, in Austin Texas. I learned to keep myself organized and to mind my own business, while doing what I am asked to do. Times were stressful in the Semiconductor Products Sector as the plant prepared for a major reorganization. I took my severance pay and went searching for a position doing more inspiring work with highly motivated engineers in the automotive industry. Fate had it that I would return to a childhood passion of mine: robotics and artifical intelligence. The GDRS team hired me on the spot, and I took up a position modelling the latest radar information into a format autonomous robots can use. That position tested my stamina and commitment to excellence. I took on new responsibilities, like liason between divisions, monitoring emerging technologies, managing peers, and developing within a settled framework. When I lost my desire and focus on that technology, I made my way back to Texas to gather my inner strength and focus on the future. I found the lure of legal restraints on intellectual property intriguing in light of my experience with new technologies and intercorporate collaboration. Law school took me four years, because I spent a year planning and making sure my LSAT score is high and my mind and heart is in the right place. I am very pleased with the results. The law is focused on enabling people to succeed, while giving them incentives to enable others as well. This lesson turns out to be a key moment in my personal development as well as a major leap forward for my career. I graduated in May of 2007 with a head full of ideas and a heart full of desire. I am taking to the globe to expand my horizons across the oceans and into the abstracted world of international business and law. China is a nation ripe for growth, expansion of legal freedom, and free market economics. They are challenging the global economy with a novel approach to free society, which incorporates idylic principles of communism with the spirit of capitalism, and hope for the future of the mind bogglingly large populous. I think they are going to make waves in the international scene, and I am excited to have an opportunity to work for the government as a foreign expert, teaching law at the University level.
