He was considered a “gifted and talented” child and so he was utterly unprepared for adulthood.

In 2018, Mark wrote and published The Book of Many Little Things: Volume 1, a collection of narrative poems exploring many fantastic and esoteric topics.
In 2019, Mark attended the Colorado Media School where he pursued an education in his lifelong passion of sound and video editing. Mark graduated with honors.
Mark has since worked with Best Served Creative and Over Easy Booking, creating and editing social media content. He had the pleasure of producing and directing Not Just A Haircut, a four part wellness mini series. From 2021 to 2022, Mark had the privilege of working with PBS12 as a camera operator, engineer, and floor director for several longstanding local Colorado TV shows.
As a follow up to his first book, Mark completed Death and Human Resources, a fantasy comedy novel. The book is available for purchase in paperback and on Kindle at Amazon.com.
