User Profile: Mark
My name is Mark and I'm the Marketing and Communications Coordinator here at Pololu. I studied at Columbia University and served four years as a US Marine.
I enjoy volunteering, gaming, and spending time with my family.
My first day with Pololu was February 6th and the symbolism of that date is not lost on me; I started my career here the same day that Elon Musk launched Falcon Heavy. Had the flight been less than a spectacular success, I'm sure that it would have cast an inauspicious cloud over my first week. Fortunately, (almost) everything went well and like Mr. Musk, I couldn't be happier.
I am not an engineer, nor a programmer. What I am is a graphic designer with a good bit of marketing and web development experience. I am also used to wearing lots of different hats, having at various times been an art director, email administrator, and social media manager - sometimes simultaneously. Despite that, or perhaps because of that, I was offered the position of Marketing and Communications Coordinator and I happily accepted.
I hope to share my perspective on Pololu as something of a novice to the field of robotics, as well as news about upcoming events and product releases. I can tell you that I am a nerd to the core, and that I have loved robots since I was a little kid. I have also loved dinosaurs since my childhood in New York City, where my mom or my aunt would take me to the Museum of Natural History to stare at the immense skeletons of ancient behemoths. Who knows, I may even fulfill my dream of building a walking dinosaur robot.
I will be monitoring sponsorships and community outreach efforts, so if we've supported your team or project in the past you may hear from me. I'm looking forward to getting updates and possibly sharing your progress on our blog. Our contact page shows all the various ways you can reach out to us.
