Mark’s passion for electronics was clear by the time he was just a few years old. Mark built his families first computer by the age of 7 and by the age of 10 Mark had disassembled and reassembled nearly every electronic device in the house. This life long passion for electronics led Mark to focus his efforts on many aspects of electronics throughout his life from learning the basics of coding to understanding the design of large scale server infrastructures. Eventually Mark’s focus came to be on the physical hardware inside of all of the electronic devices that he so loved. An unexpected call from a long time colleague led mark to entering the electronics prototyping field where Mark learned the Chemistry and Physics involved in making the most basic component in nearly all electronics. Mark is currently the Director of Sales at American Standard Circuits where he helps his customers to understand the most efficient way to take their concept from a schematic to the first working prototype.
