About the Blog:

If you need an official Autodesk company response or a contact for press related activities please contact Autodesk Public Relations.

The content of this site are my own personal opinions and do not represent my employer's view in anyway. In addition, my thoughts and opinions often change, and as a weblog is intended to provide a semi-permanent point in time snapshot you should not consider out of date posts to reflect my current thoughts and opinions.

While not everything is the official Autodesk opinion, endorsement, or recommendation, it is a blog from an Autodesk employee. This approach provides direct contact between customers and Autodesk personnel most familiar with our products. It is one effect method in breaking down the wall that separates customers from those in Autodesk. I think the visitors get the feeling of content that may be more informal and timely. You never really know what I will post up here and that adds to some of the draw in my opinion.

Our customers enjoy seeing more of a face to those here at Autodesk. At Autodesk we develop products that many of these customers use daily for many hours. In much of the information they see from Autodesk there may not really be a personal view, insight or connection. I also try to point out potential new trends in technology and what that can mean to you in the field when you want to view or mark up drawings easily.

Autodesk already has some very great marketing and tips and tutorial content on the web and in print, so I am not out to mimic that but add quick bit size nuggets of information that may interest them in our products as well as technology or resources.

About Me:

I have been a passionate user of Autodesk Products, first as a customer and now as a Technologist for the Office of the CTO. I was trained as a mechanical designer and have used many of the Autodesk products as a customer prior to joining Autodesk in 1998.

All blog posts are fresh, never frozen or from a can. No saturated fats, MSG, and of course they are gluten free unless you print posts and eat the paper.
