It has been great having Mark on my team. His extensive experience constantly provides context to the work I am currently engaged with or will soon be doing. There's no way to say precisely how many years more experience having weekly meetings with Mark makes me feel, but it's at least 3. If you're an engineer on a lean team, looking for career guidance, or newish to the industry, I recommend connecting with Mark. I am very grateful to have such a seasoned dev in my corner.

My experience with Mark has been excellent so far. I contacted Mark because I wanted to change careers and become a web developer. I had some experience under my belt but just small projects with no guidance. Mark provided that guidance and much more. I am still under Mark's wing and still learn new things every week during our calls even months down the line. He also provides me with support through texting and email if I need something in a pinch. I would highly recommend Mark if you're trying to advance your programming skills regardless of prior experience.

I have been working with Mark for a couple of months now and it has been great! Mark is friendly and responsive, and has helped me feel more confident in the direction I'm taking my projects. As a self-taught developer who is still learning, it is so helpful to have a knowledgeable professional to point me in the right direction. Mark has helped me a great deal in both improving my coding skills but also in helping me to start thinking about the tech industry hiring process as a whole as I attempt to transition careers. Most importantly to me, he has helped me get out of the "tutorial after tutorial" cycle and into building real projects that I care about. If you're considering trying a mentor, I highly recommend Mark.
