Design Coordinator

Design Coordinator: Mark Tabor

Mark Tabar is a student at Kent State University. He enjoys going to school and learning new things everyday. When he isn't learning, he can be found either jamming out to musical tunes or doodling his life away. But to be completely honest, his only real concern is getting more of that Mulan schezuan chicken nugget dipping sauce. That is what it has always been about.
