I'm an avid cyclist and manage one of the largest cycling teams in the central Midwest. Previously to my HR role, I was a Chief Audio Engineer, where I managed, operated and worked hundreds of live events, with Presidents, Vice Presidents and a long list of musicians and talent. During my tenure as the Head Audio Engineer I was a contributing technical writer for several publications, reviewing electronic equipment, submitting more than 25 articles for print/publication. In my job transition period, I created a successful Cycling Coaching program, developed, marketed and organized a road race, attended by several hundred racers traveling from four states.

My experiences are broad. I would be open to relocation to CO, NC, SC, UT.
I am active on LinkedIn and can email you a PDF of my resume if my experiences could be a fit for your organization.

Thank you,

Mark Farmer
