Mark screwing a header in placeMark is half of the duo behind Backyard Deer Deterrents.  Mark's inventing streak has blossomed since moving to his homestead.  In addition to coming up with these deer deterrents, he developed an automatic chicken waterer that provides copious, clean water in his chicken tractors.

Although he grew up in the suburbs in Ohio and never considered living the farm life until recently, his family's roots lie in hard-scrabble farming in eastern Kentucky and farming seems to run in his blood.  While Anna putters with her seed packets and makes planting charts, Mark does the hard work of tilling, fencing, building chicken tractors, and keeping the farm running smoothly.

Mark loves the freedom of making up his own hours and the self-sufficiency of living off the land. Recently, he has also enjoyed exploring the physics of consciousness and the disclosure movement.
