Hey, I'm Mark.

I'm a software engineer living in Montreal, Canada. I help companies improve their technology operations by helping them build and support their technical teams, implementing tools and practices that optimize their work methods, and developing and architecting their key solutions.

My keen interest in solving life's problems, improving organization and optimization, and my passion for making people's lives easier led me to web development in 2009. Since then, I've had the chance to work on several projects, tools, approaches, and solutions aimed at making the lives of customers, developers, teams, and my clients more enjoyable.

In 2020, I founded Neaf to build things I care about with people who share my values. I love working with cross-disciplinary teams and passionate people to create innovative solutions and products that I believe in.

I'm also a bit of a design nerd and love beautiful web design, photography, and just generally being around creative people. In my spare time (which isn't very often), I like to work on personal projects that allow me to explore new technologies and techniques.

Having had the opportunity to work with Mark in the context of a project with unfavorable conditions, I can testify to his great multidisciplinary expertise as well as his rigor and professionalism. His qualities as a software engineer made it possible to meet the challenges we had to face: the delivery of an e-commerce site based on a platform of which we had only a theoretical knowledge, and this, within the framework of a budget and an extremely tight deadline. The project was cost effective and the result was more than satisfactory, worthy of being included in our portfolios.

In addition to his ability to carry out a project on the Front-End, Mark's very complete profile and great intelligence allow him to understand all facets of the project, including the creative aspect. His ingenuity and knowledge allow him to complete the project in the most efficient way. Mark's involvement in a project is a guarantee of success.

His social skills and his pedagogical side allow me to see in him a young and inspiring manager full of future that I would warmly recommend in such a role.
