As an ’81 University of Pittsburgh graduate, with a degree in Civil Engineering, Mark began his career surveying for several years on the East Coast. Then in early ‘84 he moved to Phoenix, Arizona and started working as a design engineer at a private firm. Having learned the early version MicroStation in ‘84 (and what would eventually become InRoads); he was chosen to be trained on the first official release of InRoads in the late 80’s at the new Rick Engineering office in Phoenix. From there he moved to Los Angeles in 1991 to work with Bechtel on the Euro-Disney project as the Civil Lead. In early 1995 he was employed at Intergraph and eventually wound up with Bentley in 2001 through their purchase of the InRoads technology. In November 2001 he founded Zen Engineering.
Mark has worked with 100’s of engineering firms and has worked with 1000’s of users from all over the country while training entire state DOT’s in Connecticut, Hawaii, and Alabama. He as also providing training for Caltrans, NDOT, NJDOT, ADOT, Los Angeles County, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Corps of Engineers and many, many users from private firms such as Bechtel, Parsons, PBQD, DMJM, URS, Boyle, CH2M Hill, Fluor Daniel, HDR, and Wade-Trim.Review:
This book is truly awesome and has catapulted my understanding of the Managers and Locks, ... and in plain English. --Jim Rhodes, Design Engineer
