Started my career in 3D Modeling in manufacturing at the Boeing Airplane Group in 1997 and worked in the 777 group for just over 2 years. I then continued my career in manufacturing at the Brunswick Boat Group, US Marine/Bayliner/Maxum/Trophy, modeling boats. I worked here for 8 years where my responsibilities ranged from creating drawings for manufacturing to modeling and document the full design of boats including custom parts. I made the transition to AEC or BIM/VDC role and was hired as a design tech at Mortenson Construction in August 2007. After 6 years I worked my way up from the design tech position to the Integrated Construction manager position and continued to work at Mortenson for another 2 1/2 years as a integrated Construction manager. I am currently the Innovation manager at the BN Builders Seattle office, have been with BNB for 2 1/2 years. My role at BNB is to manage the Innovation department which includes running projects, managing personnel/resources and developing new process and procedures as we advance the use of BIM/VDC in the industry.
