Instructor William Work is an architect whose origins date from a time when construction was documented entirely by hand. He was an early adopter of AutoCAD as his documentation tool of choice. For many years, while continuing to practice architecture with a number of large well known architectural firms, his primary role was CAD (computer-aided design) manager. His responsibilities included deploying the application and associated customizations, establishing and enforcing use standards, developing and providing group training, and providing direct individual support.
William has been a speaker at Autodesk University, the annual, four-day, Autodesk user conference drawing thousands of attendees from around the world. William holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Pratt Institute.
