I firmly believe that your CAD software shouldn't limit your creativity or productivity. I love helping people realise their amazing ideas by getting them over the CAD learning hump.
I am pragmatic and business focused. No CAD work should take any longer than it really has too, and all CAD work should benefit its end customer.
I enjoy helping customers to get the best out of their Investment in their Autodesk software by helping them to map, optimise and automate their workflow.
