About Mark

I'm a soldier, combat veteran, creative, and driven. Technical writing is my focus in my job, writing documentation and user guides for software as well as writing processes and governance for IT project management. I was on 2 combat tours to Iraq (2 years), and have served in the Regular Army (active duty) and the NC Army National Guard. That's a little bit about my professional background.

As the man with the vision, I want to bring additional team members who believe in a cause and working to help underserved communities as well. The platform seeks to combine records management with a closed social network for the government (local, state, federal), military/veteran, and public safety (law enforcement, EMS/EMT, paramedic, and fire fighters). This is just the beginning.

Currently, I am putting in sweat equity, fronting whatever financial capital I can to take care of costs as they arise. I will eventually seek funding once the platform is built and the beta is complete. I would like to bring on a couple more people to join the team and help me build something great.
