Mark K.

President

Mark is a third year member of team 3128 and a Junior at CCA. Within the strategy and mechanical departments Mark has served as Primary Driver and in 2020, leader of the STR Subsystem. Mark’s passion for engineering reaches outside of the team where you can find him 3D-Printing all sorts of mechanisms in his spare time. Truthfully, It’s surprising Mark can make time for the team at all considering his intense waffle and LaCroix promotional obligations. All in all, Mark is extraordinarily excited to help lead the team this year and promises to not drive the robot into any more tables.
