Wait a minute, Doc. Ah… Are you telling me you built a time machine… out of a DeLorean?

As the Senior Director of Development, Mark “Shrop” loves working at the intersection of leadership and technology. He has a passion for personal and team growth, aligning individual purpose with Mediacurrent vision. Shrop focuses on empowering teams to be their best while using best of class open source technical solutions.  

Over his 20 plus year career leading technical teams, Shrop gained experience in IT roles at a large urban research university and nationally recognized award-winning graphic communications company. Through these experiences, Shrop has learned to lead others with an eye on the big picture, while getting into the details as a software developer, systems architect, and system administrator. One of his proudest accomplishments has been his role in building a stronger technical community in the Charlotte region. For the past several years, Shrop has served as the community co-organizer for the Charlotte Drupal Drive-In event, hosted by CharDUG (Charlotte Drupal User Group) where Shrop is a co-founder. He is a frequent public speaker around meetups and conferences, talking about leadership, technology, productivity, and mentorship.

When not focusing on teams and clients at Mediacurrent, Shrop enjoys spending time with family, podcasting, running live sound, and playing various musical instruments.
