Day 2 in the New Autodesk Portland Office

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 16:21:12 -0700

We are in our second day in the new office and things are running relatively smooth with only minor things such as HVAC tuning, printer setup, coffee machine training, and some finishing construction going on in the Towne Square area on the 2nd floor. All this is pretty amazing considering this building was in poor shape (almost condemned for safety) 2 years ago and a major crack the entire height of the building and in dire need of major investment...

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 22:13:00 -0700

Its been a long day moving into our new Autodesk office located in the downtown Central Eastside Industrial District just off Burnside Bridge near the Willamette River. We moved into the renovated and restored Towne Storage Building. Employees began arriving early this morning to the office to unpack and look around. The office is amazing and a truly creative space.

Experimenting with the Banner

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 08:32:40 -0700

After several years of the same blog banner image, I am switching it up. There may be a couple iterations of my generative design themed banner image over the next few days. The Autodesk Corporate Strategy team is using this same image internally and externally, and since I am on that team it makes sense to follow suit. I kept my mugshot since many have told me they recognized me at events from reading my blog and seeing my mugshot...
