I am an Expert in assessing intellectual property positions and advising on protection and commercialisation strategies.
I am currently the Director of the New Zealand Trade Development Centre (NZTDCH). Prior to NZTE, I was Director of Commercialisation with EverEdgeIP Ltd where I managed a small high-performing consultancy team.
The NZTDC in Taipei works with New Zealand companies to help them increase their exports to Taiwan and to develop partnerships with Taiwanese companies. It also works with Taiwanese buyers and companies interested in investing in or working with New Zealand companies.
I also have a long-standing involvement with the incubator and angel investment communities in New Zealand and has invested in and managed a number of early stage businesses.
