Meet the Staff

Hi there! My name is Marc and I'm the General Manager of theCoderSchool San Mateo. I believe that it's never too early or too late to learn about programming - and I'm proof of the latter. My experience as it relates to programming, is definitely a little unconventional. Unlike most coders, I didn't study computer science while I was in school. Instead, I got my Bachelor's degree in Economics and East Asian History when I attended USSC. After graduation, I then worked in restaurant management and operations for a few years. It wasn't until recently that I decided to learn about programming, so I enrolled in an intensive Web Development Coding Bootcamp. While learning to code, I got to experience how challenging and gratifying it is to create websites and web applications, so when I completed the coding bootcamp course, I knew that I wanted to help others learn about the joys of programming!  Feel free to contact me at with any inquiries.

Swing on into our school and you're sure to run into one of our Coding Coordinators, Laurel, Max, or Acelia.  Find them at our front desk - they can help answer questions about our programs, get your schedule booked up, or just chat the day away!
