Mark received his BS in Computer Science from CSU, Chico in 1985. He is currently Co-Founder, CEO, and Managing Partner of FitzForm; and Co-Founder and CEO, YOUnite, Inc. He was a Systems Engineer with Data General from 1984 to 1988, joined Sun Microsystems in 1988 and worked there to 1993. He then spent one year as Senior Marketing Engineer for NeXT. During the 1992 to 1993 timeframe, Mark was the Founder of Tidalwave Technologies (Firstwatch). From 1995 to 2000, he was the Senior Staff Engineer for Veritas Software, a publically held company with over 10,000 employees. From 2000 to 2013 he has been the Youth Director of Saint Matthew Archdiocese of San Francisco. Mark believes his new venture, FitzForm, might be the “beginning of the end” of the drudgery surrounding the filling out of paper forms. His other company, YOUnite, holds patents on distributed patent sharing; Fitzpatrick says to think of it as a way to enable sharing of your Facebook profile without storing the data on Facebook servers. In his spare time, Mark teaches Catholic Confirmation classes; he calls this his hardest job.
