Following his dream of being a voice talent, Mark decided to leave the stability of his science lab, and join in the ranks of professional voice over. Starting in late 2015, he started doing radio commercials and is now heard on the Las Vegas radio waves, soon adding New York and Los Angeles to the places his voice has traveled to. He can also be heard online, joining the ranks of several audio dramas and animations, and even a few mobile games. When he isn’t in his studio, it wouldn’t be hard to hear him sitting with friends and practicing his craft around a table, during several weekly tabletop gaming sessions. He wouldn’t be here if not for his late father, who was the one who gave him this gift. “It’s all for you Dad.”
