About

My name is Mark Downie, and I am an enthusiastic software developer and designer by trade. My work allows me to be a technical leader with well earned expertise in financial services, healthcare and manufacturing. I have over 10 years experience mentoring and developing international, multi-disciplined groups (more background info here).

PoppaString is an independent digital design entity I began while living in central Ohio with the purpose of helping startups, non-profits and social outreach teams meet an increasingly digital audience (I am patiently assisted in all matters of design by my wife).

The most persistent function of this site is a platform to talk about technology and software, and the various ways it can transform the lives of everyday people, I hope you find something helpful. Please subscribe if you feel so inclined.
