Nate grew up in Rutland, Vermont. He attended the University of Vermont, graduating with a BS in Civil Engineering with a focus in structures. Nate started his career with a small BIM start up called Assemble Systems as their first dedicated application engineer and went on to lead the Assemble team of engineers up until the acquisition by Autodesk. Nate was responsible for the support and workflow development of Assemble's largest accounts, while also leading the international expansion of the product since the acquisition by Autodesk. It was during his travels abroad where he realized his passion for sustainability could be tied to his work in Building Information Modeling. He continues to look at new ways to leverage technology to offset unsustainable construction practices, while also driving efficiency and collaboration throughout the entire construction life cycle. Since then, Nate has transitioned to a role as the Senior Business Consultant, where he has widened his focus and work more closely with Autodesk’s largest customers. Nate currently lives in Boston, Massachusetts and enjoys photography in his free time.
