Thanks for visiting, here’s a little bit of info about me personally, shortly after graduating in 1998 from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, I began doing design work in a general civil engineering firm using Land Development Desktop. Learning the software on my own, I soon became the resident expert in both LDT as well as AutoCAD. As soon as Civil 3D was released, I realized the potential it had and began devoting my free time to learning its ins and outs. Joining the ranks of the application engineers in the fall of 2006, I have been training engineers and drafters to successfully use Civil 3D in their firms and have passed the Associate/Professional Certification from Autodesk. I have also taught at Autodesk University every year since 2007 (2013 was my seventh year teaching there), Denver AUGI CAD Camp in 2008, and am a registered professional engineer in the State of Colorado. I also won the AUGI Top DAUG competition at AU 2011.

On a more personal side, I have three little boys, a 11 year old and 9 year old twins.  I love to fly fish and go snowmobiling and I absolutely love the mountains.  If anyone is ever in town and wants to go fishing, let me know.  I’m always looking for an excuse to go.

Me and my family

    I caught your post in AUGI concerning not being able to see dialog boxes – needing to set CMDDIA saved my figgin life. I was about to re-install Autocad 2011 Map when I reset CMDDIA and bingo all my query dialog boxes came back.
    Not sure why CMDDIA had such a profound effect on all this but it did. So thanks for the info.
    I live in Northern Calif. near the Oregon border currently, but all my family (what’s left of them) lived out in the east part of Colorado near Limon. Hey thanks for the help and I really like your webpage. 1st rate.

    One of the better C3D blogs going. Thanks for all of the information. And, thanks to Autodesk for giving us all back our plottable aerial imagery.

    If you’re ever in Austin give a shout and I’ll show you some good warm water fly fishing.

      I assume my 3 weight rod won’t be much use down there. As my uncle from Houston once said about the fish I go after, “Brian, we use fish that big as bait, to catch our bait!”

  6. Great blog! Great resources as well! I will make sure to follow.
