The iPad version is much better than the website to view everything.

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.
