"a very talented web producer and marketing programs/operations manager..."

"It's been a pleasure working with Mark at Centrify for the past seven years. Mark is a very talented web producer and marketing programs/operations manager. He is very knowledgeable about Marketo and Salesforce.com, and is able to produce programs under tight deadlines among competing priorities. Whether it's a simple change to the website that's needed, or a program with multiple deliverables like HTML email, landing pages, back-end connectivity and reporting, Mark always delivers. Mark is also very flexible. He will take on a project at last minute's notice, and still drive through to completion on time. I highly recommend Mark to anyone who is seeking a highly skilled and deeply experienced marketing programs/operations professional."

"thank you for your support of the camping and environmental education work that we do..."

"Thank you for your participation as a sponsor at our first annual Little Basin Camping and Recreation Festival on April 21, 2012 at Little Basin in the Santa Cruz Mountains, a group campground of Big Basin Redwoods State Park. Your class, 'Introduction to Family Camping,' contributed greatly to the success of the festival and toward helping make new campers aware of how they can create a successful camping trip. We appreciate the effort you put into designing and delivering this class twice during the festival, and I was impressed by the hands-on methods you use and the excellent visuals and examples you had for participants. And, as always, thank you for your support of the camping and environmental education work that we do at the WOLF School.
