Husband, Father and Data Management Professional

Viroqua, Wisconsin

Hi! My name is Mark…

…and I’m an IT pro who lives in Viroqua, Wisconsin. I live with an awesome wife, some cool kids and an assortment of cute critters.

Currently I’m the Integration ETL Architect (Data Integration Architect) at Organic Valley, where I’m responsible for the movement of data between 20+ enterprise software applications. I also have a passion for Linux and web hosting, so I run a small webhosting company: Viroqua Hosting Co.

When I’m not in front of a screen I enjoy getting out into the woods (on my feet or a bike), working on home improvement projects and helping out with a great school that the kids attend.

60 Second Budget

Why Can’t I (we) Stick To A Budget? Budgeting is kind of like weight loss: we all know we need to do it and have a lot of success for a little while, but no matter how hard we try, the problem keeps coming back!
