About Mark

I served ~12 years as an Active-Duty Marine (SSgt), thereafter graduating with a Business degree in Management Information Systems from San Jose State University and starting my own consulting practice. Later earning a Lean Six Sigma Certificate from Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory and both a Masters Certificate in Business Intelligence and Information System Security- Government from Villanova (best is the GIBILL paid for 90% of it all). I now consult as a Program/Project/Change manager or Sr Business Analyst to Fortune 50 (Microsoft) and top SF Bay Area & Silicon Valley companies' leaders along with advising big four consulting firms in tactical and strategic uses of seamlessly aligned lean business processes, technical architecture, business intelligence, and secure data flow in a global context. Cut costs + increase revenue = win-win. 2016 goal is to form a non-profit which specifically tailors roadmaps for veterans and their families transitioning.
