Mark Hilverda is a designer and geoscientist who loves space, art, and web development. He's happiest when he can combine the creative processes of writing and designing with the technical aspects of coding and science. His interest in planetary science began with the Voyager missions just a few years prior to his interest in digital design.
In addition to being Digital Specialist for the Planetary Society, Mark is the Web Manager for the AGU Planetary Sciences Section and also runs Varve Studios.
