Mark Watkins Background:
Mark is CEO and co-founder of goby. Mark's inspiration to start goby is rooted in his passion for creating interesting ways for people to find and explore information about how to spend their free time. Prior to starting goby, Mark led Engineering & Professional Services for Endeca, a provider of search and information access solutions for the online arms of companies such as Borders, IBM and American Express. Before that, Mark held various executive leadership positions for technology companies such as Parametric Technology, a leader in engineering collaboration, data management and 3D design, and Evans & Sutherland, an early computer graphics pioneer.
Mark has a Master's degree in Mathematics from the University of Utah, is the co-holder of a patent, and has published a number of articles in peer-reviewed technical journals. Mark also sits on the board of Styleta (www.styleta.org), an online nonprofit boutique run by a network of college students that collects designer fashion donations, sells them online, and donates the proceeds to charity partners who focus on women's initiatives. During his free time, Mark is an avid outdoorsman, tennis player, music fan and culture buff who uses goby to find new backpacking trails and historic sites to tour, and to feed his eclectic (ok, "odd") music addictions.
