Mark was born in Chicago, Illinois and has loved illustration and animation ever since he could use his peepers. This led him to attain a Bachelor of Science in Media Arts & Animation. Since then he's worked for several companies where he tended to contract work from Disney, Marvel Comics, Nickelodeon, Universal Studios and Crayola. He was also creative director for Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale's Children's Ministry, where he animated and edited a children's show called "Virtuality." Currently he works at Jellyvision Inc. where he uses the power of animation to make boring things (like life insurance) exciting!

When Mark isn't talking about himself in third-person, he collects vintage pulp mags, vinyl monsters, and is hopelessly addicted to giant monster movies. In his leisure, he goes on adventures with his wife, Noelle, and together they are the co-creators of The Lost Land of Yehey, a web-epic!
