Born into a family of sax players (his mother and sister played the saxophone, and his brother, Phil, is still a performing saxophonist). Mark has always been surrounded by music and musical instruments: "Growing up, we always had a pianos, guitars, and a saxophone in the house. I even had a set of drums for a when I was a teenager. But it was the saxophone that spoke to me and always felt the most right in my hands."
For Mark and his music, it's all about communicating love.
