A self-confessed Geek, Mark has been working right at the coal face of IT in Blenheim. During that time he has worked with Businesses, Schools and Government Departments.
He was responsible for designing the solution used to migrate New Zealand Schools from the server room to fully within the cloud. That model is still being used in School migrations today.
A love of all things automated, Mark loves the challenge of working out simple effective automated processes for any business, particularly with repetitive tasks.
One of his key strengths is adapting to change within the IT world. As a keen lifelong learner, he is happiest when new technology is released that he has to learn and then out it into practice within the Business environment.
Mark prides himself in his customer service and still gets a kick when he helps someone with an IT issue and gets it fixed!
A man of simple needs, all he wants is a self driving car, his robot lawnmower and an Alexa device and he will be a very happy man.
