It's that time again! This is the second installment of our series "The Team", dedicated to your curiosity about who we are at Atria & what makes us tick as individuals.
Check back every week for a new post featuring one of our team members!
This week, we're featuring our video (and photo) extraordinaire, Mark Elliott. He's also my little brother, so I feel a twinge of favoritism towards him :) Enjoy!
