If you are like most people, you’ve likely used one of the popular audio guides during a recent visit to a museum. An article in Seattle Times reports how Clay’s YodioTours is taking the concept up a level over the museum experience by adding digital photos and expanding beyond the museum walls to sightseeing on the streets of Seattle. Better yet, these tours are free to the users. And they can be played on your iPhone or Android smart phone.
Mark offered a very personal presetation of his days as a member of Phi Gamma Delta Class of 1984, Sigma Tau, and he also talked a bit about his football career.

Wore #88 for the New Orleans Saints
Wore # 89 for the Raiders
Mark has always been driven by challenges. Whether in his football days at UW or playing in the NFL for the Raiders and New Orleans Saints. He started his first branded merchandising company, The Pattison Group in 1994. In 2000 he founded Front Porch Classics that grew into an award-winning game company which won Toy of the Year twice and was sold to University Games in 2008. Merging his years of experience with the Pattison Group and many of the design staff from Front Porch Classics, Mark recently introduced Maverick Apparel Printing — clearly leveraging his experience with his prior companies with the benefits of the digital age. Recently customers include Zappos, Concur, World Gym, and others. Maverick brands from 1 to a million t-shirts or any quantity of most any other printable merchandise.
Mark is CEO of Maverick Apparel Printing (following info from www.MaverickAP.com website)
Maverick is all about being fun, hip, friendly, pro-active, ambitious and 100% customer-oriented. Nobody knows this better than our co-founders Mark Pattison and Greg Smith.
Mark, former NFL football player, has a proven track record launching and leading successful companies in a range of industries—from toy and game manufacturing, to business software creation, to promotional products sales and marketing. Greg, a Seattle Real Estate Developer, has business interests across many spectrums including a Nissan Dealership, Cherry Street Coffee, Seattle Bagel Bakery and more. Together, these two alpha Dawgs are building a rock solid foundation for one very exciting company.
During the luncheon, Mark also talked about a place dear to his heart. Located about 20 minutes north of Bozeman, Mark inherited this ranch in Montana from his grandfather. Mark has developed a cabin and bunkhouse as a retreat for his family (and friends), and he recently opened it for rental to fly fishing groups wanting to private access to the property’s river. His 2,000+ acres includes a river running through the property. The ranch is also available for hunting.

He was an avid tennis player and skier and a member of the Three Eye tennis fraternity.
