Mike spent a long career in Research & Development, Manufacturing, and Business Management after hiring into E. I. DuPont into the old Petrochemicals business. He later transitioned into the Imaging Systems and Medical Products sectors of DuPont and became the Vice President of Research and Development for those businesses. He later took early retirement from DuPont and joined a start-up company in Austin in additive manufacturing (3-D Printing) which got into a multiyear international patent litigation battle with a European competitor. During that time, he directed both patent prosecution and litigation efforts that were going on in the U.S., Europe, and Japan. He later became a Registered Patent Agent and has been actively practicing both domestic and international patent prosecution for many years.

 

Areas of patent practice have included electro / optical / mechanical systems used for imaging and medical products, other hardware and software products related to capital equipment businesses, the technologies of the chemical process industries, including advanced process control of chemical and oil refining operations. In oil and gas, he has specialized in advanced fiber optic sensing systems in downhole operations, as well as specialty pumps and compressors for oil and gas exploration. In polymer applications he has specialized in compression molding of large-scale composite thermoplastic structures. Other areas of emphasis have included special products for federal agencies, including the Department of Defense, neural net applications, and image processing technologies.
