As a sophomore at Milken in 2010, Mark was already breaking ground in the tech journalism world. Finding out the scoop the old-fashioned way and revealing news about illusive Apple secrets such as Siri, the Macbook Retina display, and new releases of the iPad and iPhone. Mark’s work in high school on breaking Apple news stories for the authoritative blog 9to5Mac earned him a position as Senior editor there, where he reported on some of the most prolific developments in the Apple sphere.
While at 9to5Mac, Mark was named one of Time Magazine’s 25 Best Bloggers of 2013, one of Wired Magazine’s 16 People to Know in Tech in 2013, and one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in 2015. Mark commented, “the combination of writing, economic, and scientific research classes at Milken helped reinforce my interest in the technology world and helped push me into this field.”
Shortly after graduating from the University of Michigan In 2016, Mark made the leap from 9to5Mac to join Bloomberg's Global Technology Team to cover consumer product news from all of the biggest players in tech, including Apple. In 2017, Bloomberg launched a web series entitled “Gadgets With Gurman” in which Mark reports on weekly product news and reviews the latest tech products. The company plans to expand this content to Bloomberg TV in the future. You can tune in to Mark’s web series here.
