    mcb1 - element14 Top Member & Upcycling Expert

    Mark reached Top Member status very quickly and was also element14's first ever Level 9 member.

    "I trained as an Electronics Technician back when most things glowed, transistors and IC’s were not as common, and the internet didn't exist. I dabbled in BASIC and VB and never really progressed until introduced to Arduino, hence software isn’t my stronghold. I’ve been fortunate to combine my electronics with my hobbies and expand my ‘comfort zone’ by taking part in Design Challenges and RoadTests. My daytime job is a Technical Co-Ordinator for New Zealand's Air Traffic Provider, Airways, where we monitor and respond to faults throughout the country."
