How to pronounce my last name,
and other useful information.
If you're wondering, my last name is pronounced f+eye+gun+boots. But the "butz" part sounds more like "books" than "boots."
Just call me Mark.
From stand-up comedy to copywriting, screenwriting to conversation design, I've been engaged in the creative process for the better part of my life. In my current role as a Sr. Content Designer, I support and influence the design of a suite of conversational interface products.
In the past, I've led multiple enterprise conversation design efforts, provided conversational UX/UI support and creative direction for an AI startup, and ideated treatments and original concepts for an established studio.
If that weren’t enough, here are some sensible sentence fragments written in the third person:
• Developed a test to quantify virtual assistant personality
• Designed and curated the personality and conversational UX of an AI startup's chatbot
• Designed the conversational UX & UI of a Fortune 50 customer support chatbot
• Led the conversational UX design of a Fortune 100 sales chatbot 
• Collaborated with AI and ML subject matter experts to enhance NLU
• Collaborated on the design of Alexa skills and various VUI experiences
• Wrote the screenplay for a short film that was accepted into the Academy Award-qualifying DIFF and the BAFTA-recognized ASFF
• Wrote, produced, and directed a one-man comedy show
Now, if you thought my career pitch was good, wait 'til you get a load of my elevator pitch...
Need to ascend a building, and fast? Tired of futilely flapping your arms, spending thousands of dollars on suction cups, and astral projecting?
Don’t wait, elevate.
With an elevator, you’ll be on the fast track to the top.
Lament the weather (and climate, if you're feeling adventurous), throw down a lot of dad-esque head nods, speculate whether the “Close Door” button actually does anything, and more—all from the comfort of a literal box.
So, going up?
