Hi I'm Bob

I live in Washington state. I'm married and have 4 great kids. I work as a patent attorney. And, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being active by running and biking. My free time is largely spent with my kids. I'm fortunate to have my parents and my wife's parents living nearby. We're able to get together often. Professionally, I work as patent attorney. I'm passionate about intellectual property law and manage a team of patent law professionals.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to join and remain an active member of the Mormon church because of the deep, abiding feeling and assurance that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. My feelings and sense tell me that following the Church, its leaders, and Christ's teachings will bring me and my family happiness in this life and in the life to come. I'm a dad, a patent attorney, and I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

In living my faith, I try to be a great Husband, Father, and Son. Balancing these with busy employment can be challenging, but I find it rewarding. My time with my family is what I cherish most. My oldest son is currently serving as a full time missionary and I support him in this. At church, one of my responsibilities is to coordinate missionary efforts. I've found interactions with our full time missionaries and those whom they teach to be spiritual and uplifting. In other areas of my life, I think I help share the gospel, in part, by trying to live it in my daily life.
