Prior to joining Sidewalk Labs, Mark worked for FivePoint Communities in San Francisco, where he managed land development programs on large, mixed-use master developments and developed a passion for applying emerging technologies to large-scale infrastructure systems. Mark’s background in urban infrastructure development covers the spectrum from planning and entitlement through construction and operations. Before working in land development, Mark worked in civil construction where he had many experiences including building water harvesting systems in rural Guatemala, imploding high rise buildings in New Zealand, and managing large federal infrastructure projects in the United States.
Mark is originally from Minnesota but spent five years in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife and two sons. He has a BCE in Civil Engineering with a minor in Construction Management from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities and continues to learn every day. When not on the project site or chasing his two sons, you will find Mark exploring the local microbreweries, backpacking in the summer, or snowboarding in the winter.
