Born and raised outside of Boston, Mark has been performing since a young age. Inspired by the power in the relationship between character, performer, and audience member, his work moves through the worlds of theater, music, performance, and nightlife.
Mark is a recent graduate of Harvard University, where he studied a Special Concentration in Theater Arts and Performance. Under the advisement of Jill Johnson (The Forsythe Company), Mark's concentration synthesized dramatic literature, theory, and practice with contemporary art theory, history and performance studio work. He also both worked and performed at the American Repertory Theater, including crafting the theater's social media voice and online presence and performing in Diane Paulus and Randy Weiner's The Donkey Show and Taylor Mac's five-act love epic, The Lily's Revenge. After Harvard, he spent a year living in Berlin as a Henry Russel Shaw Fellow, studying contemporary performance and nightlife.
Mark has worked with artists including Courtney Love, Taylor Mac, Randi Zuckerberg, Diane Paulus, Randy Weiner, Shira Milikowsky, Ianthe Demos, and Jeremy Wade. His original works include Julie Cooper: Genesis Prayer and OSCAR at The Crown, a nightclub pop performance detailing the fall of Oscar Wilde and the conflicts between fantasy, reality, poetry, and the internet. Other performances include Marjorie Newquist in Little Murders (directed by Shira Milikowsky), The Blast (directed by Lilleth Glimcher, written by Dan Giles), Teiresias in Anne Carson's Antigonick (directed by Ianthe Demos), as well as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in The Rocky Horror Show and James St. James in Clubland (both directed by Andrew Barret Cox). He also spent a year as a co-host on "Dot Complicated with Randi Zuckerberg" on SIRIUSXM.
Above all, Mark believes in negative capability.
