Mark feels truly blessed by the opportunity to contribute to the Family Life news team. The Upstate NY native has spent his adult life working in media all around the area, be it in radio, print, television or online. Currently, Mark is enjoying suburban life with his wife and two rescue pups. In addition to radio, Mark is an active freelance photographer and volunteers his time as an audio engineer and photographer for his home church. He has been on six mission trips to the Dominican Republic, participating in everything from medical clinics to infrastructure improvements, all while wishing he’d paid more attention in high school Spanish class. In his rare free time, he is happiest either playing and composing music, or playing fetch and tug-of-war with his pups, Marshall and Ronnie.
