    After studying Civil Engineering in the early 1990s, I began my career as a 2D designer at an engineering firm just as the industry started transitioning to digital drawing production. I spent the next two decades working for an international consulting engineering organisation evaluating, implementing and supporting each new generation of digital design technology. I advocated a progressive change policy and helped deliver significant advances in the way that software can transform the way that projects of all sizes are delivered. I am passionate about the benefits of 3D modelling, BIM and big data for driving standardisation and optimisation throughout infrastructure project delivery.

    I joined Cadline 2 years ago with a focus on Infrastructure. Over these two years I have used my considerable experience delivering complex projects in the Netherlands to support our customers through their digital transformation journeys. I specialise in AutoCAD Civil 3D with drainage design, survey data, content creation with the Sub-Assembly Composer and most recently rail design and the new Dynamo functionality. I develop BIM workflows that connect multiple Autodesk applications such as InfraWorks, Navisworks, Recap, BIM 360 and Vault.  I am an Autodesk Certified Engineer and I am actively involved with the development of the NLCS, the CAD standard of the Dutch civil engineering sector.
