Mark Ely - CTO

I served in the USAF for 11 years 6 months and 2 days. One of the pleasures I had in the service was being a powerlifter and participating in the military olympic events.

As a hobby, I enjoy flying my drone and making genealogy videos. I started in the I.T. field in 1997 and have been "pedal to the metal" since then.

I am humbled by the people I have met as well as the opportunities I have had. I believe that honor is defined by yourself not others. Be the best you can be and the rest will take care of itself.
