Born into a musical family, Mark developed a passion for music at an early age, influenced by classical composers such as Beetehoven and Chopin. His musical education began with piano lessons at age 4, followed by the violin soon thereafter. While studying composition, his love for his craft led him to touring nationally in bands playing the guitar and various instruments, as well as composing for independent shorts. Mark's ability to convey emotion through music to pictures ultimately led him to Klaus Badelt studios (Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator, Olympics 2008), where he frequently collaborates with Klaus as well as composes independently. Mark has worked on over 30 Hollywood and independent films and resides in Los Angeles.
