  • Toby DattaloEntrepreneur | Various ventures

    "I had the pleasure of having Mark consult on a mobile app project. Mark was courteous, professional, and most of all very insightful in many ways. He did a great job of taking complex IT knowledge and putting it into layman's terms, while also offering a great deal of advice and suggestions. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone who has an entrepreneurial mindset and is trying to break into the tech world"

  • Katherine VeleyEvent/Alumni Manager | Falk College at Syracuse University

    “I’ve known Mark since his tenure as a student here at SU and have been fortunate to watch him build this business from the ground up based on his skill, his creativity and his desire for perfection. I’d like to think that the Sport Management Club here at SU was one of his first clients, and he has continued to ensure our success through his web design. His niche lies in his desire and ability to be as much a part of your team as any paid employee, ensuring that what he designs will not only meet but exceed your expectations. He knows how to listen, but just as importantly he’s able to foresee needs based on continued growth, looking at each project from the eyes of not only the client but the consumer. Endorsing Mark is a welcomed task, working with him is a pleasure and calling him my friend is an honor.”

Mark remains a great contact and very reliable web designer that we have already recommended to other colleagues."

  • Lillian AuldOwner | Butter Me Up Brooklyn

  • Ken HoellgerSEO Specialist | Best SEO Program

    “Mark has done an excellent job with my wordpress site. Always kept the communications open to resolve any issues. Very professional. Athough the site is very basic, it was put together as I requested."

  • Sean KeeleyEditor, Writer, Blogger, Author, & Playwright |

    “My writing career had taken off to the point where I needed a website to start promoting my work. I knew Mark from a previous business partnership and he offered to create a site for me. Over the next couple months he walked me through the process in a personable and quality manner.

    When it was done, the site looked fantastic and Mark walked me through the front and back of the site, answering all of my questions. Not only did it look great, but he made sure to make it "idiot-proof" so I could update it on my own and take care of it. All the while he's remained on-call and able to help and update the site when needed.

    I highly recommend Mark for his skills in building websites as well as the way he deals with clients. Honest, forthcoming and with great results.”
