After many years using SolidWorks and participating in the SolidWorks community, both online and in real life, I've made the move to join SolidWorks Corp. As of June 6, 2011, I am a member Product Definition team, with a special focus on drawings. SolidWorks Corp has been very welcoming.
I have been using SolidWorks for 13 years as a mechanical designer/engineer while also serving as the PDM/CAD Administrator at a medical device company in Silicon Valley, CA. Prior to that, I worked as a Drafting Department Supervisor and Mechanical Designer at manufacturing company in Monterey, CA for 7 years. I have an active role on SolidWorks forums and Twitter (link to my new "SolidWorks" account), etc. I've also presented at SolidWorks World, SolidWorks Technical Summits and local user groups. (My blog, SolidWorks Legion, will remain a hobby on the side; however any research, discussion of SolidWorks improvements and business updates will come only through official SolidWorks channels.)
Now, I'll be leveraging my experience to help in the effort to further development SolidWorks products with customer feedback and new innovations. Since my focus will be on drawings, I will have discussions with many users about their experiences with SolidWorks drawings. I'm happy to be working as a member of the SolidWorks team, and with our many customers.
