About Mark

A little background on me… Since the late 1990s, I’ve worked in some form of communication, whether graphic design, writing, editing, web design, photography, advertising, or something else like that. Prior to that, I spent 13 years as a touring musician and staff songwriter in Nashville. Those were my “Don’t Have a Real Job” years.

In Jan. 2017, my wife, Holly, and I launched a new business, Hobnail Trekking Co., after I had a chance meeting with a Nepali Sherpa in Nashville. Our company is the only one based east of Colorado that provides treks to Everest Base Camp and other epic locations in Nepal. Read about it this INCREDIBLY unlikely but cool situation HERE. Check out our company website HERE.

I live in Kingston Springs, Tenn., with Holly and our children, Sam, 16 Ava, 15, and Pete, 10, all of whom are just plain goofy like their dad.

In one of my many weird brushes with fame, here I am playing Witchy Woman on the 1996 broadcast of the Miss Texas USA pageant in South Padre Island. Twenty years later, it seems kind of cheesy, but at the time, it was pretty neat.
