Upcoming Autodesk Gallery Tour for NFL Players

The Autodesk Gallery at One Market in San Francisco celebrates design — the process of taking a great idea and turning it into a reality. With about 60 different exhibits regularly on display that showcase the innovative work of Autodesk customers, the gallery illustrates the role technology plays in great design and engineering.

As one of the Autodesk gallery ambassadors, I was excited when Julia Papapietro McFarland, Manager of Gallery Events and Marketing Programs, asked me to do a tour for some NFL players. As someone who grew up watching football, I wanted to see who I would be conducting a tour for:
