SWW Speaker Spotlight – Thomas Allsup

Thomas Allsup, one of the principles at Anida Technologies, isn't exactly a householdSolidWorks Community name..outside of Texas that is.  Here in the Lone Star State, especially in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, he's well known – and for good reason.

Thomas has become very active with the North Texas SolidWorks User Group, providing many insightful, educational, and entertaining presentations over the past year or two.  He's even stepped in and lent a hand with logistics and planning – something I know that group leader Christie Buresh appreciates.  For the SWUGN Summit – OKC, not only did Thomas agree to present, he also organized a shuttle to take NTSWUG members the nearly 200 miles from the Metroplex to the event.

Last year was the first SolidWorks World conference that Thomas attended, and he's eager to return – this time as a presenter.  He'll be a huge hit with students and educators at SolidWorks World, presenting in the EDU track on Geometric Tolerancing.  Thomas has classroom experience, and has presented in front of very large groups before.  Something I didn't know until yesterday is that he performed as a Tenor with the Tulsa Opera many years ago (I wonder if the students could get him to sing a note or two?).

Look for Thomas to spend some time hanging out at the SWUGN booth, and I'm sure he'll be at the SWUGN Summit meeting.  Or…take in his session – even seasoned veterans could use a brush-up on GD&T.
