Mark is a singer/actor and improv artist who discovered a passion for theater late in life when his niece asked him to audition with her for a show. How does one say no to a  twelve year old with a dream? Many shows later Mark is obviously hooked. His favorite role to date was Herr Schultz in Cabaret.
