Mark's passion over the last decade has revolved entirely around Magento. Starting with the early days of Magento 0.8, he had a heavy interest in the Zend and Magento Frameworks and has been devoted to eCommerce & PHP for even longer (over 20 years!). Mark has held all positions within many organizations, ranging from junior developer to chief solution architect. During this time he's spoken at conferences such as Magento Imagine and Meet Magento New York. His LAMP stack programming expertise has paved the way for him to become a Zend Certified Engineer and Adobe Certified Expert. He loves open-source software and has maintained docker-magento, the most popular development environment for Magento since the release of Magento 2. Now, he works for him as a course creator for M.academy, a company he founded which simplifies teaching Magento development. Mark is married to his wonderful wife Juliann, and they are the proud parents of twin girls Lily and Brielle. He lives in Northeast Ohio and loves eating Chipotle burritos, solving Rubik's cubes, driving his 240sx, and watching Cleveland Browns games.
