Learning to BIM with Shoegnome

Jared was raised in New England (Connecticut), educated in Texas (Rice University), and worked in Minnesota for eight years before moving to Seattle, Washington in 2014. Jared is a licensed architect in the state of Washington.

Jared founded Shoegnome, LLC in 2010 to promote the use of Archicad and BIM in residential firms. In 2015, Jared evolved Shoegnome into a hybrid of BIM consultancy and architecture firm. Located in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, Shoegnome Architects works with homeowners on custom residential projects and other architects/designers on improving their Archicad usage and BIM integration.

From 2010 through 2013 Shoegnome, LLC was the GRAPHISOFT Agent for Minnesota, providing Archicad training, support, and sales. If you haven’t watched one of Jared's Archicad videos, read one of his blog posts, or heard him speak at a user group, conference, or webinar, you've probably never googled an Archicad question or attended an Archicad event. Since 2015, Jared has become increasingly passionate and obsessed with sharing the Shoegnome Open Template for Archicad.

This week on EntreArchitect Podcast, Learning to BIM with Shoegnome with Jared Banks.
