After getting intrigued by Citizen Kane, Blade Runner and Thelma and Louise and falling in love with the French New Wave and Film Noir, Mark woke up one morning and decided he wanted to make movies, or at least try a career in television. Soon he had the opportunity to produce documentaries, a medium which Mark truly enjoys. Mark lives for telling stories that excite, intrigue and inspire.
