Biography


Greg provides patent preparation, prosecution, and general advisory services with a goal of helping his clients grow and protect their businesses through asset creation, licensing, sales, solution architecture, and professional services delivery. 

Prior to becoming an Associate with Thomas | Horstemeyer's electrical and computer engineering group, Greg's passion for learning new technologies led him to work with several hardware, software, and professional services companies that distinguished themselves by their ability to license, create, and sell new technology offerings.  

Two of those companies, Mercury Interactive and Cloud Sherpas, were startups that grew their respective technology portfolios, adding new customers and new employees along the way, ultimately leading each to be acquired by a larger organization. HP acquired Mercury Interactive in 2006, and Accenture acquired Cloud Sherpas in 2015. 

During his over nine years of combined experience at these two companies, Greg performed in roles that required him to work closely with sales, delivery, and partner teams to generate revenue and manage risks inherent in technology organizations. His representative tasks during this time included architecting and demonstrating solutions, developing proposals/SOWs, negotiating software licensing agreements, and reviewing contracts.

Greg has also delivered professional services to numerous organizations across various industries. While working at IBM for example, Greg delivered SAP and Siebel consulting to large enterprises in the consumer-packaged goods and insurance industries. In his roles at other companies he served clients in size from five person startups to Fortune 50 organizations, while maintaining Project Management Professional (PMP), Google, Microsoft, and Novell certifications at various points in his career. 

During law school, Greg spent a summer as an Examiner Extern in Art Unit 2697 at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office where he drafted office actions and examined new, amended, and after-final patent applications in the electrical engineering arts. He also worked as a Summer Associate at Thomas | Horstemeyer, assisting prosecution of various patent and trademark matters
