I work in Maplesoft’s Technical Marketing group. When explaining my role to people I usually tell them that “I wear a lot of hats”. I am in the unique position of being able to interface with many different people, including our user base, the research and development team, product managers, executives, and of course marketing. As it turns out, this means that I get the chance to really talk to people about what they want and need, and generally do a great deal of translation between the different camps, something I quite enjoy.
I grew up in a small town a few hours west of Toronto and moved to Waterloo to study Electrical Engineering at the University of Waterloo. Since then I’ve worked in the high-tech and engineering field, acting as a “translator” in a variety of ways.
My first introduction to Maple was as a high school student, and I’m amazed at how far it’s come since then. I’ve always been intrigued by mathematics and its applications, so working here with so many motivated and brilliant people is quite inspiring, especially at this point in time with all the new directions we are pursuing.
