Having built many websites for small businesses and nonprofits, Mark saw that many of these clients found managing their websites intimidating and were forced to rely on the web developer for even small edits. Searching for a solution, Mark discovered Wordpress which had come a long way from a simple blogging platform to a useful web application which enabled businesses to keep their websites current without having to learn code. Mark now develops websites exclusively in Wordpress. Mark lives on the Connecticut coast on Long Island Sound with his wife Anne and their 3 cats. He is also a fine artist and is the President of the Coastal Arts Guild of CT.
