I'm a U.S. patent attorney who was born in the Republic of Panama and grew up in Miami, Florida. After graduating from high school in Miami, I attended the University of Florida for undergraduate (Chemical Engineering) and graduate (Materials Science) schools. Between undergrad and graduate school, I played drums in a ska band for a few years and toured throughout the United States and Canada. My wife and I recently moved back to Miami after several years of living in Washington, DC while I worked and attended law school and she worked and attended grad school. These days, my wife and I are trying to spend more time outdoors and traveling than in libraries and labs!
