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!
