Field Engineer, Legend

There a few experiences in my life which I consider invaluable. They include earning my Boy Scout Eagle rank with considerable help and inspiration from my father, serving in the United States Submarine Service during the Viet Nam war, earning a black belt in a mixed style martial arts (it took me 25 years), completing a masters degree (16  years),  becoming a lifelong learner, being engaged in my faith, and ending up with some really good friends.  Professionally, I love being a helper, an ally, a facilitator, a problem solver and someone who is passionate about wanting my friends, my customers and my colleagues to be successful.  Life can be hard, life can be unfair and life can be extraordinary, all at the same time. Mark is located in our Arizona office.
