My name is Guillermo Melantoni Cortabarria. I was born in Uruguay, where I got my degree in Architecture, and immediately started working as an architect, consultant and teacher at both state and private Schools of Architecture in Montevideo (subjects ranging from History and Theory of Architecture to Project and a varied number of applications –AutoCAD, 3ds Max, Revit, Photoshop-).
Before getting hired as an Application Engineer for Autodesk in Latin America (based in Argentina), I worked as consultant for an Autodesk Authorized Reseller in Uruguay (Geosys), where I covered AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, the Revit Platform, Inventor, and 3ds Max.
I spent two years as an AE, mainly making Revit implementations around Chile, Argentina and Uruguay, as well as helping to develop awareness on the whole Autodesk portfolio in my region. At that time, I collaborated in the Introducing and Mastering Revit Architecture books, and had a Revit blog in Spanish called Revit Latino.
I then moved to USA with my wife and became one of AutoCAD’s Product Managers. I’m basically in charge of the vision around 3D, and trying to help with the interoperability with the rest of the portfolio. That is still my main focus, now also enlarged by parametric drawing.
I’ve been a bass player for the last 20 years, playing, recording and touring in Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Brazil. Originally a metalhead, I now just look for people that want to play good music, not caring too much about style (though I still have a bias towards metal). I’m also an avid videogamer in my free time.
