About Mark

I enjoy building companies and am always looking for good long-term partners. I sold my first company after 2 years, but I am looking at a much longer play with my current venture. I'm a hacker at heart (https://github.com/mliu7), but learned a little about business after taking two companies through The Iron Yard Accelerator (http://www.theironyard.com/accelerator) and acting as CEO of the first company.

My current company is called Upkeep Charlie. We are a network of service professionals who perform household maintenance tasks. We are making this traditional business model scalable by augmenting it with technology: an easy to use iPhone app that allows you to book many types of jobs immediately.
