Mark was born in Brighton, on the south coast, in England, before coming to the USA.
He started his career in Real Estate in England, where he managed the head office of one of the largest companies in the South. In 1990, he changed his career and became a Professional Entertainer, Comedian and Magician.
For over 20 years, he ran a very successful children’s entertainment business working throughout the South of England for leading entertainment centers, and thousands of private and corporate clients. During this spell, (get it, spell!!) he formed his own unique presentation skills company, teaching large corporate companies how to structure, write, and present many forms of presentations.
He was also a very successful adult performer, working in theater, radio and television. After a guest spot on a BAFTA award winning television show in the UK, he was offered his own theater show at one of the U.K.’s leading comedy venues, which just happened to be in Brighton. He wrote, produced, hosted and performed in the show, and invited many of the top magical and comedy performers from all over the U.K. and abroad to be a guest on the show. The show ran for two and half years and brought him high acclaim, especially within the famous Magic Circle, where he was appointed an Associate Of The Inner Magic Circle, one of the top awards to be granted.
He was President of the Sussex Magic Circle and Sussex Magician of the year no less than 8 times, as well as Close Up Magic Champion on several occasions, not to mention winner of the Mentalism Trophy and of course Children’s Entertainer of the year also. He has also been in many television productions as an actor extra.
He was regularly asked to guest on BBC radio, and was a star performer on a month long Christmas show on the East Coast of England. Mark took his performing skills to World wide audiences, recognized for his comedy and magic skills. He was picked up by agents in the UK and America, to work as guest Headline Entertainer on board the world’s top cruise lines, from Silversea, Regent, Crystal, Cunard, H.A.L., Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Princess and many more. During this period, he sailed around the world several times, and performed to hundreds of audiences.
It was in Goa, India, onboard Silversea’s, Silver Whisper, where he met his now wife, Cyndi, who was a guest on board.
He is a volunteer firefighter for the LVPD, EMT and a trustee of the Cuchara Chapel and on the board of the Francisco Center For The Performing Arts.
