He was born and raised in Glens Falls NY, went to St. Mary's School and then Adirondack Community College in Queensbury, studying architecture.

He built their home in 1990 with his carpentry and architecture expertise, and in 1994, welcomed the birth of his son Billy, who would be his best friend on many lifelong adventures, passing down his wisdom of building and his love of the outdoors. Mark loved fishing, canoeing, boating, hiking, cross country skiing, trail cams, and his Springer Spaniels, sharing his knowledge and passions with Billy and Pam. He helped Billy in Troop 10 of Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, encouraging his son to achieve Eagle Scout and helping lead part of the Cub Scouts for several years.
