His eclectic, low brow slant to creativity and inspiration is urban, timeless, quirky and sometimes desolate and includes an infatuation with sci-fi cowboys, robots, the unity of human nature and the roots of music. He studied both art and engineering in college and has never managed to keep them separate.

Mark’s original instrumental music has appeared in movie soundtracks, PBS shows, MTV reality shows and X Games, corporate commercials and over a dozen globally distributed instrumental music compilations. He is influenced by 50’s/60’s instrumental music, Spanish, Mediterranean and Eastern music and American blues and bluegrass. He plays electric, acoustic and Spanish/Nuevo Flamenco guitar, mandolin, ukulele, bass and percussion.
