If you look around the web with the intent about finding some information about me, you will often find information about Nelson – the band – sigh. Yes, I share the same name as the epic band by Matthew and Gunnar Nelson. No, I don’t sing, and I will not perform a gig for you.

However, what you have come across is an extremely passionate technologist that specializes in Building Information Modeling (BIM). I have worked for large full-service AEC firms and have been privileged to be a part of some fantastic projects.

It is no secret that I am a geek. I am a massive fan of Autodesk Revit and find exciting ways to extend its performance and platform. You may see a lot of that in my twitter feed @mattbenimble, and if you ever want to know more, please do not hesitate to ask. I believe that to move the industry forward, we should all share tips/tricks/techniques/jokes and provide a shoulder to cry on.

Don’t peg me as a ‘Revit’ guy, though. I am always searching for the next solution and, ultimately, a fully interoperable solution for Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Owners that is sustainable and easy to use for every stakeholder. (Yup. I am a dreamer.) To do so, I search the web daily for new technologies that may not even be intended for the AECO industry but can be extended to help. A prime example of that is my obsession with Tiny Speck’s Slack platform.
