Mark's thoughts while cycling

About

This site documents Mark Konyndyk’s personal and professional thoughts.   The title of my site refers to cycling.  It is on a long ride when as a cyclist I get in a zone and free flowing ideas occur frequently.

Personal:

Most of my time is spent being a father and husband to three amazing ladies.  I also try to find time for following hobbies: golfing, basketball, reading, fishing, cycling, and travel.   I am a technology enthusiast.  I grew up on a farm and would hit golf balls into the corn field, run to collect the golf balls, and continue on.

Professional: I have 15+ years experience as a manager and consultant in industries including Finance and Supply Chain. I earned my MBA from the University of Southern California and received both a Bachelor and Masters in Accounting from Michigan State University.  I am a CPA with a passion of using my analysis and research capabilities on industries and companies.
