Mark's normal speaking voice is mid ranged with a warm, caring, friendly character but he can easily get to lower or higher registers. He can sound fatherly and conversational or authoritative and tough. He can sound like 20's, 30's, 40's or 50's with ease from deeper rich narrative style to higher energy professional or corporate style. You can hear his normal voice type on car, computer, wine, healthcare, insurance and breakfast cereal commercials (to name just a few). Mark also has a great promo voice and can do blockbuster, fantasy, comedy, romantic-comedy and sci-fi trailer voices. Mark grew up as a huge fan of Mel Blanc/Looney Toons and loves to do character voices that would work for animation and video games. He can also make lots of weird and interesting voices and sounds. His senior voice is best for characters.

Being new to VO Mark is now ready to audition for jobs. He just completed his first intensive course in the Kalmenson Method at the renowned Kalmenson & Kalmenson Agency in Burbank, CA. However, as a graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston he has been recording and performing music for over 20 years. This real-world training has cultivated the expert use of Pro Tools and the know how to get the best recorded performances possible and deliver them in a highly professional manner. Mark's field of study in College was Film Scoring and he has scored many short films and a TV trailer in addition to composing and performing music and live sound effects for a play which ran to critical acclaim in Hollywood, CA in 2010.
