Infrastructure Technical Specialist I am Joseph Duff, a surveyor at heart with a mind for civil engineering. I am an applications engineer for an Autodesk reseller here in North Little Rock, Arkansas (ATG USA, Inc). I provide technical assistance, pre-sales technical proof, business process analysis, software training and implementation, product demonstration, and other technical business services to civil engineering firms, heavy highway construction, and land surveying companies who fall under the broad umbrella of the civil/infrastructure industry. I do not know anything about coding, though. My expertise is within the industry itself. Therefore, just knowing the software has never been enough. I also have 10 years of real-world and hands-on industry experience in transportation engineering, civil site design, residential development, and boundary and construction surveying and layout. I love it! It is not hard for me to find enjoyment from this current project (job) because I get to travel, connect and network with a lot of new people and companies, and the work environment is ridiculously laid back, fun, and nerdy. I could see myself retiring doing thing.

While self taught, I have had the beneficial experience of being the son of a machinist/cnc programmer. My interest in CAD first came in the form of video game art. I worked briefly as an artist for Bohemia Interactive Studios, where I was involved in the Arma series games and their VBS simulator projects. I quickly learned though, that game art wasn't what I wanted to do. Since then, under the influence of my father, my brother purchased a Bridgeport Boss 4 CNC. My father and I spent a good amount of time through trial and error retrofitting that machine to full CNC. Now I use Rhino4 and madCAM, along with that Bridgeport, to design, prototype, and manufacture rifle components. The skills I'm acquiring by this, I think are unique because it gives me the perspective of manufacturing in my designs. I think this really goes a long way in helping me design more practically. Without a formal education, I know that there is much room for improvement. I also know that I've had pretty unique life experience associated with the course of my projects.
