I love keeping myself busy. Helps to keep me alive and have my blood boiling in excitement in life! I have a lot of interests … snowboarding, photography, sailing, wall climbing, golf, basketball, archery, dancing, … maybe one day, I’ll get to try fishing too. There’s just always so much to do and so much of the world to see!


I joined Microsol Resources over 10 years ago and spend my days directing IT between various offices, as well as helping clients with their IT projects. As an Autodesk Platinum partner, we have some really awesome clients with some equally awesome projects. I’ve been involved with large architecture firms’ IT implementation strategy, including virtualizing data centers and optimizing file replication between different offices in different continents. It is my job to make sure everything in IT is working perfectly, both internally and with clients. Once it’s working perfectly, then the next steps is to make it work more perfectly 

In addition to my work with Autodesk software, I’m also the main point of contact for our partnership with Microsoft and have a handful of industry certs that continue to grow. I love technology and I love what I do!

    I have watched several of your videos and seen your posts on Autodesk discussion groups, so I thought I would ask you a question. Is there a way to setup group policies and permissions with Revit Server? I saw your recent post that you got Revit Server to work between consultant companies and this is what we had hoped to do with it. However, I see that through the Administration website there is no way to assign permissions for users or groups. Everyone sees every project. This is a problem when you use different consultants and don’t want everyone to see everyone else’s work.

    Any ideas?

      That’s a common request that I hear a lot during implementation. You’re right – there are very little control on who gets what permissions to the Revit model. At this time, the granular permissions aren’t available. But please start a case with Autodesk (via subscription center) so that they know this is very very sought after feature.
