Russ Nicloy worked in a production role for 10 years, including time in GIS mapping of utilities, engineering drafting, and surveying. During that time, Russ saw the project lifecycle from several different angles, which helped build perspective and understanding.
Russ has recently worked as a Civil Solution Specialist as an Autodesk reseller which introduced him to the various methods other firms took to the product lifecycle. This is when Russ began to teach as well as support users in their use of software for their workflow. Soon after that Russ began supporting a state department of transportation and became deeply involved in the transportation consultant process. Russ now runs his own business, offering drafting services and custom part creation, which is getting back to his production roots.
