Looking for a Revit MEP Specialist?

I know a Revit MEP savvy person that is seeking fresh challenges. Currently working as a firm's BIM Specialist this guru's roots extend from mechanical design (HVAC). Said guru got started with Revit 2008, a few years before many firms were brave enough to undertake using Revit MEP for their project work (since Revit MEP was just two years young then).

If you'd like to learn more about this person just send me an EMAIL and I'll connect the dots.
