Mark & Tanya's Wedding  

About the Groom...

Mark grew up in Sutton, a suburb of Dublin, Ireland. He attended Trinity College in Dublin where he received a B.A. (Mod) in Computer Science. He was awarded a Fulbright scholarship in 1993, and chose to attend graduate school at Purdue University. There he conducted research in intrusion detection while studying under Prof. Gene Spafford at the world-renowned CERIAS center.


After receiving a Masters in Computer Science, Mark left the flat expanses of the mid-west and headed west to the San Francisco Bay Area. Silicon Valley, the heart of the computer industry, is located on a narrow peninsula between San Francisco and San Jose. Mark started work with Hewlett-Packard, the grandfather of Silicon Valley, in June of 1996. He is working on leading-edge computer security products. In his spare time (what's that?) he builds LEGO robots and other electronic pests to annoy the cats.
