Information about the Event

Mark Dabrowski is not your typical computer nerd. Recognizing the positive impact of following your passions, Mark is constantly striving to improve himself and others’ happiness, productivity, and work satisfaction.

Upon completing his education in computer engineering technology from the Rochester Institute of Technology, Mark was recruited by Terry Matthews and Wesley Clover to come to Kanata where he co-founded Teldio – a two way radio applications company. Mark is currently the Director of Research and Development.

In 2015, Mark’s love of technology and the environment merged when he participated in the inaugural AquaHacking Challenge. Tying for first place with his teammates, the event thus marked the birth of Water Rangers. Water Rangers is a not for profit organization which aims to connect citizens to their local rivers, lakes and streams. Mark currently acts as the Director of Technology.

Mark’s desire to continually learn, combined with his passion for sharing knowledge, led him to be one of the founding members of TEDxKanata. When Mark’s isn’t working on his computer, he can be found playing darts and spending time with his lovely wife and two dogs.

To keep up to date on Mark’s latest projects and endeavours, be sure to follow him on Twitter at @markdabrowski.
