As clichéd as it sounds, there is no place I’d rather be than having one foot in form and the other in function.

Behind Mark’s technical mastery is a design devotee who equally values function and form. With over 18+ years of experience in front-end development, Mark is meticulous in his attention to detail in visual presentation and code. Stridently in tune with current technologies to bring design visions to life, Mark has a history of both real-world and educational experience in web development and design. Part artist, no doubt—Mark settles for nothing less than creating pixel-perfect websites.

Mark holds a BA Music from the University of Maine.
