Innovation is exhilarating, yet without direction, it can lead to spiraling costs and misplaced efforts. How often do fresh ideas lead to overwhelming brainstorming sessions, escalating expenses, and inflated hopes? Many leading corporations have implemented robust systems to streamline innovation endeavors, ensuring maximum ROI and minimized risks. Central to these systems is the strategic use of precise data. In this enlightening talk, we will delve into:

- The significance of patent data in uncovering innovation prospects.
- The spectrum of data essential for locating innovation opportunities.
- Strategies to leverage this data for both immediate and future requirements.

Join us to discover how data-driven insights can transform your innovation journey.

Data-Driven Innovation: Harnessing the Power of Focused Data


With a firm conviction that data is the linchpin of innovation and product development, I have built my career on the ability to unearth and interpret critical information for competitive advantage. My clients—ranging from legal teams and small companies without dedicated R&D departments to individual inventors and innovators—rely on my expertise to decipher trends, identify unknown competitors, and formulate data-driven strategies.

What sets me apart? I bring a diverse background as an electrical engineer with hands-on experience in semiconductor manufacturing, machining, business analysis, and patent research. I've also served aboard a Navy submarine as a nuclear reactor operator. I am the inventor of three patents in the HVAC space, which adds a unique perspective to my consulting work.

I have previously served as the Chairman of the Austin chapter of the IEEE’s Power and Energy Society and am an active Food & Tech Austin Organizer. My multidisciplinary approach enables me to deliver targeted research, timely updates, and strategic consulting, empowering my clients to make informed decisions quickly and cost-effectively.

My clients include legal teams, companies too small for dedicated R&D departments, inventors, and innovators across many software, technology, and consumer fields.
