Mark was born in Brighton, on the south coast, in England, before coming to the USA. He started his career in Real Estate in where he managed the head office of one of the largest companies in the South. In 1990, he changed his motivation and became a Professional Entertainer, Comedian, and Magician. For over 20 years, he ran a very successful children’s entertainment business working throughout the South of England for leading entertainment centers and thousands of private and corporate clients. During this spell, (get it, spell!!) he formed his own unique presentation skills company, teaching large corporate companies how to structure, write, and present many forms of presentations. Running alongside his Children’s Entertainment Business, he was also a successful adult performer, working in theater, radio, and television. After a guest spot on a BAFTA award winning television show, he was offered his own theater show at one of the U.K.’s leading comedy venues, which just happened to be in Brighton. He wrote, produced, hosted, and performed in the show, and invited many of the top magical and comedy performers from all over the U.K. and abroad to be a guest on the show. The show ran for two and a half years and brought him high acclaim, especially within the famous Magic Circle, where he was appointed an Associate of the Inner Magic Circle, one of the top awards to be granted. He was president of the Sussex Magic Circle and Sussex Magician of the year no less than 8 times, as well as Close Up Magic champion on several occasions, not to mention winner of the Mentalism Trophy and of course Children’s entertainer also. He has also been in many television productions as an actor extra. He was regularly asked to guest on BBC radio, and was a star on a month long Christmas show on the East Coast of England, before turning his performing skills to a worldwide audience. Recognized for his comedy and magic skills, he was picked up by agents in the UK and America, to work as guest headline entertainer on board the world’s top cruise lines, from Silversea, Regent, Crystal, Cunard, H.A.L, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Princess, and many more. During this period, he sailed around the world several times, and performed for hundreds of audiences in four continents. It was in Goa, India, aboard the Silversea, Silver Whisper, where he met his now wife, Cyndi, who was a guest on board. They now live in Cuchara as year round residents, with some time spent in Texas, just outside Austin. He is a volunteer firefighter for the LVPD, a trustee of the Cuchara Chapel and on the board of the Francisco Center For The Performing Arts.
