Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1959, drawing came naturally to Mark by the age of 5. After being honorary discharged from the Army in 1980, Mark worked several miscellaneous jobs before making the decision that he wanted to attend art school. Soon after, he applied and got accepted into The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art and attended for three years. Shortly after leaving school, it was suggested to Mark and a few others from the Joe Kubert School that they should apply to Hasbro to work as designers. Mark was hired by Hasbro in 1985 and worked primarily on the G.I.Joe brand until 1989 when he left to become a freelance artist.
After leaving Hasbro, Mark started working in the comic industry and has done and continues to do work for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Image Comics, and Athleta Comics. Although he has worked as an Illustrator and a Penciler for several comics, he is best known as a premier Inker. Some of the titles he has worked on include “XMen”, “Batman”, “Spawn”, and more recently “The Protectors”, Batgirl , XO and the X men.
Outside of traditional comics, Mark has also worked as an Illustrator on a children’s book series called “Short Tales Native American Myths” and on The Walking Dead Comic Book Trading Cards.
*Mark currently resides in Florida with his family and is a devoted Cleveland Browns fan!
