Hi, I'm Mark
WHERE I COME FROM
I was born and raised in Madison. After graduation, I attended MATC for my general studies credits and also played Basketball there. We made it to the NJCAA National Tournament for the first time in the schools history.
I then attended UW Stevens Point where I graduated with a BS in Communications with an emphasis in public relations and journalism.
After graduation, I ran my family’s Bar for 5 years before taking a job in Denver Colorado as a Lighting manufacturers rep. I specialized in Lighting efficiency and spent a lot of time consulting businesses on how to lower their electric bills by retrofitting to LED lighting.
Moved back to Wisconsin
After 17 years in the Lighting industry, I decided to move back to Wisconsin and started a small business on Main St. in Reedsburg, in 2016. I run that business to this day. I also received a patent in 2018 on a horticultural light that I designed. I launched that business in Reedsburg on January 1st of this year. After doing one trade show, the business has been in limbo since the pandemic hit.
