from Visalia, California

From 1981 to 1991, Mark sat in the drummer's seat for Central California's busiest Events Band, "THIN ICE." Mark and band leader Mike Wilson were the two remaining founding members of that group when it was decided to "disband" and move on to bigger things.

Wilson went of to form in 1994, and in 1997, Mark rejoined Wilson and has been propelling the beat of ever since.

Mark's wide range of musical interests and styles has positioned him as an "on-call" player with several other bands in Central California.

Mark is married to his wife Marla, another talented performer who has been a leading player in musical theatre productions for over twenty years. They have appeared together on stage on numerous occasions, and from 1991 to 1997 they performed throughout Central California as a country music duo known as "The Comfort Zone."
