My name is Mark and I work for Mozy

Editor’s note:  Mark was one of the first Mozy employees and is a familiar smiling face to all. In the early days, Mark was a team of one. These days he manages a team of five that oversees all of Mozy’s global tech documents. He is a family man and a dedicated super fan of the University of Utah. Go, Utes!

 

I define my workspace as…

Slightly messy with mementos from my coaching past. I tried to make it a little personal with some family photos as well.

A device I can’t live without….

My smart phone. I am on it all the time. The first thing I do when I wake up is check my mail and social media.

My work routine is…

Very sporadic. It really depends on the day, some days I am in meetings most of the day while others I am working on projects most of the day at my desk.

I do/do not listen to music at work and it helps me work better because …

It depends upon my mood. Sometimes I blast the music through the headphones while at other times I like it quiet so I can concentrate better. If I am writing a lot I prefer to not have music playing. While if I am researching something I prefer to have music playing.

The best advice I can give a recent college graduate looking to do what I do is …

Practice your writing skills. I have noticed recently that a lot of college students and graduates lack the ability to write well. I finished my MBA not that long ago and had to do group projects a lot. I was amazed at how many students couldn’t write very well.

Outside of work, I am passionate about …

Coaching lacrosse. I coached football for 5 years before moving onto lacrosse. I really enjoy sports and working with the young men on my team and getting to know them.

My eating habits are …

Terrible. I actually probably eat better at home because my wife does most of the cooking during the week. I definitely could eat healthier.

If I could be someone for a day – I would be …

Michael Jordan in his hay day especially when they were crushing the Utah Jazz.

The “secret sauce” that makes me who I am …

I think my secret sauce is to have fun doing what you are doing while working hard. For those people that know me know I am always cracking jokes and trying to have a good time.

One thing that makes me unique is….

I have a large occipital protuberance.
