Mark has been developing software since high school, but has been finding creative ways to make money since grade school. After graduating from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2000, he worked in manufacturing, retail, finance, and healthcare. During that time, he ran Doyle ITS on the side, developing custom websites and DotNetNuke modules.

In 2010, he launched Collabroscape LLC, a software contracting and consulting firm, with his wife, providing enterprise software and database development contracting services in and around the Dallas/Fort Worth area. In 2012, he formed Scruddle, to create a better platform for managing news and social information. He continues to work feverishly on both endeavors.

Gordon Rhodes, Co-Founder & Vice President
@RhodesFW

Gordon Rhodes is a Financial Consultant with Rhodes Securities, Inc in Fort Worth, TX who desires to help people understand the concept of saving and investing so that they can have options for themselves and their families down the road. A firm believer in the scripture from Luke 12:48, "To whom much is given much is required", he also promotes the concept of giving to a hurting world.

Gordon has always had an appetite for risk and going above and beyond the normal call of the typical 9-5 job. Right out of college, he dabbled in the TV business in New York City as a production assistant on a Buena Vista Television syndicated talk show before returning to Texas to work on a low budget faith based feature film titled "Echoes of Innocence." He helped raise money to finish the film which is what eventually lead him to his family-owned firm Rhodes Securities as a financial consultant.

As someone who doesn't mind talking to anyone and everyone, Gordon brings a sales and business peonage to Scruddle, freeing up Mark to concentrate on perfecting the product! Gordon resides across the street from Mark as his neighbor! He has a beautiful wife, Julie, who is a professional actress, and two children, Andrew and Madeline.
