Bio and Motivation
What an opportunity I was offered by the BILT Academy team, especially considering this is the inaugural BILT Academy Summit! Before I delve any further, here’s a bit of background about me:
I’m a proud Canadian… very proud, hailing from the French part of Canada actually. I’ve been working in AEC for … let’s not go there will you, but too long to remember! I spent most of the last 12 years as the VDC/BIM Manager for Renzo Piano Building Workshop (aka RPBW) www.rpbw.com. Lately, I got involved with friends in a startup named Data-Shapes (www.data-shapes.net) dedicated to all things BIM… mostly the fun stuff though!
When I first heard about BILT Academy it resonated with those words: “Here’s one more opportunity for me to pass on some knowledge of course but most importantly try to influence the way you look at BIM and technology in the AEC World”. This is one more step in the sharing process since I’m also one of the founders of the Paris Revit User Group and the Dynamo Paris User Group. In my life I’ve had several mentors from which I was able to learn, progress and become a better person; one of them, who sadly passed away years ago, told me that teaching is a luxury, not a job! You get to influence people’s life. After several years of teaching at different levels, I could not agree more. It’s great to see some of your student’s years later and realize how far they’ve made it. So, this time I get to spend quality time with students from Slovenia and Europe. Everything is new for me; new country, new city, new language, new culture but one thing remains… the passion for this industry along with the invaluable time spent with younger AEC Explorer’s.
Come over to the keynote in the morning where we will talk about BIM of course… but real BIM. I will explain and demonstrate what BIM is about with some real-life project experience and a bit of humor I hope.
