About me?!

My name is Mark Bitman. I live in Yucca Valley, CA and grew up in a town on the west side of the state of Michigan called South Haven. South Haven sits on Lake Michigan and has a population of just over 4,000 people. It is a summer hide-a-way place for many people from the surrounding states and major cities such as: Detroit and Chicago.

After graduating high school I moved to Lansing, Michigan, in 1978. I worked at Linn's Camera Shops, Inc. for 8 years and photographed many weddings as a side job. I was the youngest assistant managers appointed at Linn's Camera Shops.

In 1985, while photographing a wedding, I met a woman who worked for Michigan State University, in the Financial Aid Office. She liked me and asked if I would be interested in applying for a job she had opened. I agreed and was hired to work on the Pell Grant team in the Scholarships Division. Twenty-eight plus years later, I retired from Michigan State University and am starting this business to bring in revenue to sustain myself and family. At first, this business will be done part time, however, as I build clientele, I plan to expand the business into a full time job.

I have a B.S. in Management of Information Systems from Warren National University. I received this degree in February of 2009.
