Mark Baldridge is an Electrical Engineering student and hobbyist. He is currently studying at the University of Wisconsin in Platteville. While electronics are his formal training, he has passion and skills in aeronautics, mechanics, music, and finance. Short-term internet fame was gained when his Rhett & Link inspired DIY pinball machine was acknowledged by the aforementioned YouTube personalities. A google search for “Rhett & Link Pinball” will reveal artifacts of that time. Mark’s passion for aviation has thus far culminated in the beginning construction of a 1927 Pietenpol AirCamper.

Besides being a hobbyist and professional, Mark is a husband and a father of one daughter.  His wife is supportive and both are excited about what the future holds for the family.
