Every June, UC Berkeley hosts a Summerfest event, complete with live music, food trucks, photo booths, activities and free t-shirts specially made for staff. This year, UC Berkeley Human Resources shined a spotlight on the hidden talents of four long-term UC Berkeley employees and how they use these talents to excel in their jobs. The first of these mystery staffers in the spotlight to be revealed was our own Mark Cassettari, Assistant Director of Physical Operations….. and Magician!

The crew filmed Mark in the I-House Chevron Auditorium and the California Magic Club in Downtown Martinez. To see Mark work his magic, watch the video below:

Bravo Mark! We are lucky to have you and your magical talents at International House.
