Transcript of FIT TEAM

Creativity, Passion, Perseverance, Service to others
Steph Brown
I've never deployed in disaster so that is my biggest learning. I really curious how the team has organized itself in the past during a deployment. I would love to know more about the communications technology side of things.
Grew up on a farm, I am resourceful, can wield a hammer, manage power tools and I also know how to pull a calf. Hopefully that skill will not be needed. I can ride a horse and manage animals. I have a fair sense of environmental best practices. I have managed big projects, be it renovating a house, organizing conferences, digitizing all the farmland in Georgia, to building a new government program.
I use my creativity as I synthesize conversations into visual charts.
I embrace ambiguity even if it makes me uncomfortable sometimes.
I have a plethora of facilitation approaches I can incorporate into group processes. I fly fish. I garden. I was an archeologist for many years. I know GIS (at least a few versions of ArcMap back, it keeps changing!). I can use Photoshop and Illustrator. I don't like to deal with details...not my wheelhouse.
Passion and Creativity.

I would love to learn more about FIT and what Autodesk can offer and compliment as well as how I can be involved in any future disaster assistance. My son is Coast Guard auxiliary and an EMT involved in civilian disaster scenario exercises and water safety.
I am a technologist and former mechanical designer who used to design and build large steel structures and now work at design software company Autodesk. I am involved in research project involving technology and innovation. Recently I have been focused around capturing 3D models of terrain or objects fast or using UAV copters as well as scuba diving with the National Park Service to capture underwater structures in 3D such as the recent USS Arizona project.
" I embody all four of the items I have listed however I would aspire to have more balance and serenity (I can be a bit of a fire starter, lol. but even fire starters need these important qualities!) "
