As a senior product manager in Bentley's Design and Simulation group, I help build, promote, teach, and grow Bentley's structural analysis, design, and documentation solutions. I also am the liaison for our SEAPAC customer base, ensuring their requirements and concerns are addressed in our products and in our support communities. My background is structural engineering and often times I need to put myself in the shoes of a designer, engineering manager, or BIM specialist to really understand and solve their problem. Carrying out our mission also takes me into the office of our clients frequently. I really enjoy these opportunities to see how our solutions are being used and to learn how we can improve. In doing so, I've been fortunate to meet a number of you out there.
