Good, quick read
As a product manager it’s easy to become so busy that you lose sight of some larger truths. Do any of these product management lies sound familiar?

Say hello to the new A360, and goodbye to the old.

We will be officially defaulting all A360 users into the new A360 experience at the end of July. As a part of this transition, we will be discontinuing the use of the old user interface and product experience.

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.

Story
Tagline
product leader +autodesk
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.
