Passionate about music at an early age, Mark took every opportunity to be involved in extracurricular activities that revolved around it. Music followed him wherever he went, be it church, his after-school program, at home, in the shower etc. Regardless, he questioned whether it was the right route for him to take career wise. Mustering up the confidence his senior year, he auditioned for Berklee College of Music and got in!
Mark made the most of his time at Berklee; he performed in on-campus shows/productions, did countless reference vocals for songwriters, contributed vocals for Music Production and Engineering students, co-wrote songs and sang background vocals for his peers. One of these many collaborations led to a viral video on YouTube. In December 2013, there was a video that was uploaded of Mark singing "Oh Holy Night" in Boston's Museum of Fine Arts with Berklee's Loft Session Music made a gigantic buzz, was shared all over the web and got major news coverage. Mark is now enjoying music as his full time job.
