Mark Christopher is a Lead Engineer at Boylston Properties where he maintains and monitors the building systems and addresses tenant calls, specifically at our life science buildings: 100 Forge, 200 Arsenal Yards Blvd., and 500 Forge.
Prior to Boylston Properties, Mark had experienced a diverse array of jobs since – some including pizza maker, painter, bartender, sternman on a lobster boat, unloading places for UPS, and much more. His career in building engineering began at the World Trade Center in Boston and in 2004, moved on to the John Hancock Tower and then returned to the World Trade Center where he then worked for JLL. While working at JLL, Mark worked closely at the Linx building as well as Arsenal Yards.
Mark has always been an avid football fan and participated in a fantasy football league with his sons, James and Noah. Being that it is quite competitive, he started listening to a few fantasy football podcasts to try to stay a step ahead of them.
I was born and raised in Winthrop until I was 32 and then moved to Saugus for 8 years and now live in Peabody.
I’m married to my wife, Jane, and have 4 sons - Seth, James, Austin, and Noah and 2 dogs - Coco, Shih Tzu/Yorkie mix and Rosie, a Goldendoodle.
A favorite restaurant of mine, and was also a favorite of my Mothers, is called The Village, we went there when I was a kid. Jane and I still go there and they have great fried clams.
Back in I believe 1985, I was up in North Conway and decided to go for a ride in a bi-plane. We sat in the front going at, what felt like, 5 miles/hour right next to Mount Washington. Suddenly the pilot had the plane going totally vertical and then did a nosedive, the plane now seemed like it was going 150 miles an hour- spinning the plane and doing loop the loops. That adrenaline lasted 3 days after we landed.
