Mark has taken professional, persuasive, and various creative writing courses. In his final year in college he tied for the most news articles written in his school's newspaper, being known for his witty and informative articles.

He was asked to write a speech to give to his college's Board of Trustees in 2013. His experience in persuasive writing and presenting techniques helped him to secure private funding from the Sunrise Rotary philanthropic group for a service trip to the Dominican Republic in 2014.

He has since delved into the financial and insurance industries. He has recently developed his talent for making things easy to understand while voluntarily teaching English as a second language as well as United States civics for 6 months to refugees in Buffalo, NY in 2015 and 2016.
