While studying the inefficiency of motion of reciprocating pistons, heI developed a transmission which converted both directions of input motion (forward and reverse; clockwise and counter-clockwise) into a reversible, single-direction output motion. That concept was embodied into a socket wrench that continued the rotational drive of the socket in the desired direction when the handle was moved both forwards and backwards – thereby increasing the drive output by 100%. Tools were sold to the U.S. Air Force and commercially on QVC Sales Network.

- While training new staff members, he saw the need to develop an easier to use system for preparing and processing Employment-based Immigration cases so that new staff could more quickly begin processing cases. That resulted in www.LiveImigration.com – a tool for law firms and companies to collect information, evaluate strategies, and prepare PERM applications online. Additionally, it can serve as a national platform for attorneys to work more directly – and interactively – with their clients regardless of location.

Harvard ~ M.I.T. ~ Stanford ~ U.C.
