Hey everyone!

This is the first port to this blog. As an introduction my name is Alan. As I type this I am preparing to move from New York to Philadelphia to start a new job out there. I will be working for the A/E firm KlingStubbins as a HVAC Project Engineer and BIM Team Leader. Looking forward to moving full steam ahead on the BIM front.

A little background .. grew up outside NYC in Westchester County, graduated from Northeastern University in Boston with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Technology. Worked for GE Aircraft, Advanced Energy Systems and Norian/Siani while in school. Moved back to NY after school and worked as a Mechanical Engineer at Buro Happold for almost 4 years specializing in BIM, software technologies and complex building system energy analysis. Revit MEP, Energyplus and eQuest are my weapons of choice.

Looking to focus this blog on the areas above with a strong focus on Revit and my new found adventures in to the land of the Revit API. Will also post on anything software related in the AEC world as well as random musing.

Much thanks to the excellent Revit blog community already well on its way. Without you I would still be using AutoCAD.
