Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Clint Eastwood westerns were regular movie viewings for Mark growing up. But during his freshman year of high school, Mark watched the Academy Award-winning film: Braveheart. That did it. He knew he wanted to work in the film industry.
An undergrad in Speech Communications gave him a few opportunities to develop his interest in the dramatic arts. He moved to New York City and studied acting. While in New York, he began screenwriting under the guidance of teacher/filmmaker: Jason Chaet. By day, Mark is a teacher. By night, he is a screenwriter - his major screenwriting influences being Wes Anderson and Tony Gilroy.
