Music with a Vision
An American-born musician, composer and songwriter, Mark grew up in Warsaw, Indiana. He started playing music at the age of 8, first on piano, then seguing to drums and percussion. After graduating from DePauw University with a bachelor’s degree in percussion performance, he became a percussionist with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra and did postgraduate studies at the University of Tennessee. Since then, Mark has recorded, performed and toured with some of the most respected musicians of our time including Benny Goodman, Bob Hope, Lynn Anderson, Sarah McLachlan, Andrea Corr and Loreena McKennitt to name a few. Mark's rich and experienced background in percussion and songwriting provides a solid energy and heartbeat for any music project he is involved in. His compositions and arrangements are energetic and distinctive.

"It has always been my belief that the artistic process starts with an inspiration, be it a thought in your mind, something you personally experience or something that is discovered while practicing your art. In music, it then transcends to notes on a page or sounds imagined in your mind. From there, it is brought to life through the sounds of instruments and voices in live performances or recordings. And, then and only then, it becomes music when experienced by others."
