This is my personal website. So who is Mark Verber? I am a husband, father, son, and brother to my family. I am a Christian who tries to embrace love, justice, mercy, simplicity, and mindfulness. I am a systems thinker who wants to make a difference in the world. I believe that the world is complex with far more inter-connections than most people realize… so small changes can often make a huge impact.  I think society can be best judged by how it treats those with the least power.

I have spent most of my career in what is today called DevSecOps: the intersection of engineering, program management, IT, security, with a dash of research. To quote a former boss, I efficiently build durable, reliable systems without leaving a mess behind. I like to say that I build systems which have “good bones” which are able to adapt to changing requirements. When I started my career we simple called this systems programming and building scalable system.

I try to spend as much time as I can outdoors. I am trying to understand what it means to live a healthy and fit lifestyle. I enjoy traveling and reading. I am a bit of an audiophile.

This website which was started in 1990 and continued to be hand edited HTML. Now that it’s 2018, I have decided to modernize by converting to WordPress.  A lot of “new” posts are really old content that is finally being updated. I sometimes tweet things I find interesting.
