|I am submitting my nomination for the FTC Advisory
Committee on Online Access and Security and have attached a description
of my qualifications.
In brief, I have actively followed Internet law issues since 1996 and have published extensively, focusing particularly on privacy issues. I also frequently give presentations on Internet/e-commerce legal issues; my next presentation is scheduled in March at Georgetown law school where I will be appearing on a three member panel along with the general counsels for AOL and AT&T. I also currently serve as the vice chair to the Internet Industry Committee of the American Bar Association.
In addition to my experience in private practice, I have also recently assumed a position with an Internet company, Onview.com, as general counsel and director of business development. Onview.com sells fine art online. Its customer base therefore targets a sophisticated customer who, like online financial services customers, place a premium on their privacy and security online. I therefore bring both legal practitioner experience and practical Internet business experience to the Committee.
Finally, I have also represented a number of clients on a range of FTC issues and am familiar with the Commission's work both in the online privacy area and with regard to other matters, such as marketing and labeling claims.
I am here in Washington D.C. and will keep my schedule clear so that I will be able to attend all of the FTC hearings in the event my nomination is accepted. If you have any questions, please contact me at 202-775-9865.
