A LITTLE MORE ABOUT MARK

avatar

Mark is a SAG-AFTRA/AEA actor who was born in North Carolina and grew up in Tennessee. He began acting at the age of six in local theatre and played leading roles in productions throughout school and in college, where he earned a BFA in Fine Arts and Theatre from the University of Tennessee.

The summer before his senior year, he landed his first professional job with Southwestern Stage in Georgetown, Texas, where he played Jesus in 'Godspell' and Don Baker in 'Butterflies Are Free'.

On graduation day, he threw his cap in the air, his bags in the car and drove cross-country to Bigfork, Montana, where he spent two summers and performed in 9 productions there, including the lead roles of Stine in 'City of Angels', Ben Rumson in 'Paint Your Wagon' and Bill Sykes in 'Oliver' at the Bigfork Summer Playhouse.

Mark originated roles in four productions with Premier Cruise Lines. Once he became eligible to join Actor's Equity, he moved to New York City. Two months in, he was cast in the Gateway Playhouse production of 'Shanandoah', which turned into a 6-month National Tour. He lived in NYC for nearly a decade.

He joined Actors' Equity in 1996 and the Screen Actors Guild in 1999.

While there, he trained with famed Curt Dempster at Ensemble Studio Theater, studied improv with Second City NY, performed in various workshops, and was in the original cast of The Disney Magic (Disney's first cruise ship).

Mark took a nearly 10 year hiatus as an actor to explore his other passion, Visual Design. He worked as an Art Director in Entertainment Marketing for some of LA's leading agencies, working on Oscar campaigns and advertising for the Broadway musical, 'The Book of Mormon', and the films, 'The Grand Budapest Hotel','The Artist', 'Moonrise Kingdom' and 'ParaNorman' among others. Mark returned to his first passion, acting, in the summer of 2013.

In Los Angeles, Mark trained with Margie Haber, Jack Plotnick, Killian McHugh and Comedy/Improv at The Groundlings School.

In 2017, he moved to Atlanta to work in the Southeast market, a place he loves to call home.

In Atlanta, Mark completed the Meisner Intensive at the Robert Mello Studio.

In July, 2019 Mark re-established his NYC roots where he divided his time between Atlanta and New York. Since his return, he's attended Master Classes with Kathleen Turner and Chazz Palminteri and recently completed the Comedy Intensive class with Lesly Kahn & Co. (LA)
