In 1990, Mark began working for Intuit, where he began in support and quality assurance. Mark also worked various versions of Quicken for DOS, Quicken for Windows, and eventually worked on the team that released the first version of QuickBooks. Then, in 1994, Mark got hired at Lotus, a company taken over in 1995 by IBM. At Lotus/IBM, Mark worked on Approach database software. Before moving to Kauai in 2000, Mark had a job at Arbor, where he worked in a 3D database that provided large corporations a more complete picture of their data.
