After moving to the U.S. to study at the University of Detroit Mercy, Mark led the development of a connected car project for the United States Army. With aspirations to create a better world through technology, Mark co-founded Dialexa, a Technology, Research and Creation firm that helped build more than 100 products and was later acquired by IBM. Its internal incubator, Dialexa Labs, has spun out four companies including Vinli, the world’s leading connected car platform, Robin, the world's first robotic mowing service, and Rosy Wellness, the first-of-its-kind platform offering women a holistic approach to sexual health and wellness.
Today, Mark is the Chief Executive Officer of Vinli, and sits on the board of Vinli, Rosy, Aim7, and UNICEF USA (Great Plains Region). He is also a Presidential Leadership Scholar (PLS), a type-rated pilot, and a member of YPO. Mark resides in Dallas, Texas, with his wife, Claire, and the couple’s three young children. When he’s not in Dallas, Mark is sharing his story on the global stage advocating for children and refugee rights.
