Here is a great class to see the Future of Making Things in actions at #AU2015
Inventor 2016 R2 gives users new modeling tools and approaches that enable the creation of a greater number of alternatives with more flexibility and freedom than ever before. See how to utilize several of Autodesk's MFG design and analysis products in combination with one another to create the highest quality design possible.

Yea, I guess that us what I mean.. Interesting that yahoo was so PM focused.. Definitely has some cool products (Flickr, messenger, business), just feel like they don't have the swagger necessary. Love they brought a product person in to fix it

Introduction
I am a Sr. Product Line Manager at Autodesk. I am currently responsible Simulation family of products - both traditional desktop products as well as cloud based.

Prior to this, I worked at Blue Ridge Numerics and was in charge of Product Management and Marketing for CFdesign. Autodesk acquired Blue Ridge in March, 2011.

When not obsessed with CFD, I do actually have other hobbies.

I'm a big music fan, enjoy all kinds and particularly like going to live shows. I'm almost as obsessed with the band PHISH as I am CFD.

Also an avid soccer fan and have season passes to the Philadelphia Union.
