A former DJ and OUT Magazine's choice for Hottest Reason To Dance (Summer Hot List 2003), Mark started performing at the age of 4 and trained most of his life to be a singer, actor and musician. By the age of 21, Mark had studied briefly at New York's American Music Dramatic Academy (AMDA) and had acted in or directed 78 theatrical productions in Chicago, New York and Indiana. It was around this time that Mark began his career in television as a production assistant at MTV for "The Andy Dick Show", "Jackass", "Direct Effect" and "Undressed", followed by an internship with Tobi Yoshimura at "The Jerry Springer Show". In the ten years since, Mark has scripted, produced and edited projects for television and film both independently and for MTV Networks International, floor produced the red carpet show for the 2009 Europe Music Awards, done voiceover and production design work and recently finished work on his second sitcom pilot script “Unlawful Intent: Heinous Crimes Unit”. Mark is an Aquarius, doesn’t like mustard or onions and lives his life by a set of lessons and principles learned from watching the movie "Showgirls". Mark cites John Waters, Christopher Guest, Mel Brooks, Andy Warhol and his Aunt Joanie as his primary creative influences.

Here is a sampling of projects Mark has produced independently and for MTV Networks over the past few years.
