Mark joined the Bonanza team (which consisted of Bill) in mid-2008 as Bonanza user #173. He cut his teeth peddling the promise of Bonanza to wary Pike Place Market vendors. They told Mark they didn’t have the time to sell online. So Mark came back with his camera, offering to create their store for them. He was asked kindly to leave.
After a handful more sad attempts to get anybody to care about Bonanza, Mark lucked out when sellers started arriving without his personally begging them. Mark quickly discovered that his upbeat, get-stuff-done attitude was exactly what Bonanza needed to field the hundreds of inquiries being generated by Bonanza users each day. Mark now oversees one of the most acclaimed support teams in ecommerce, as well as promoting team morale.
Mark is inspired by assuming the best in others, and trying to make life happier for mankind. He enjoys Kanye, P90X, performing improv, and Kanye.
Prior to joining Bonanza, Mark owned Dorsey Floral LLC, which was named one of Deloitte’s Fastest Growing Companies in Washington State.
