Mark has been developing PHP applications for the last seven years for Austin Peay State University, University of Tennessee Libraries and Jones International, Jones e-global library and Jones International University. Mark has been working with Drupal for over two years, and has thoroughly enjoyed being able to contribute to the wonderful FlashVideo module, releasing theme-related modules Text Resize and Quotations, and now a CCK widget/UI module called Multiselect.

Mark recently received a Drupal "Certified to Rock" rating of 5 from the experts at GVS. According to them, this puts him in the top 8% of all Drupal users in the system. Here's an explanation of their rating system.

He's currently experimenting with Drupal 7 and working on upgrading various modules into the new cutting-edge version of the content management system.

He has recently moved back to the South to his hometown of Clarksville, TN and is an active member of multiple groups on G.D.O. including Drupal in Education, Nashville Drupalers, Videocasters, Libraries, and the Southern Colorado Users' Group.
