Matt was first introduced to AutoCAD and 3d Studio in High school Engineering class in the mid 1990’s and was instantly hooked. Through the next 15 years he received both hands on and formal education as a student and employee of Virginia Polytechnic University in various fields including engineering, transportation, welding, machining, composites and reverse engineering to name a few. He then began to apply all the knowledge to digital product design and manufacture. Through the years Matt has stayed well versed in many CAD and CAM software packages including AutoCAD, Inventor and Fusion 360. Along with his time in Transportation Research and more currently Engineering Consulting and Training for the past 7 years, Matt has created and contributed to several eLearning sites, created resources for Community Colleges, Resellers and Manufactures of CAD and CAM software along with various other types of training totaling several hundred hours’ worth of content. He has designed several Fusion 360 courses totaling about 40hrs worth of digital content and several multi-day on-site Fusion 360 training classes helping users make the switch to Fusion 360. Matt is passionate about passing along knowledge and skill to anyone willing to learn and takes personal time to help out students with engineering challenges using CAD. In his free time Matt enjoys racing motorcycles, wakeboarding and spending time with his wife and kids.
