Mark picked up the guitar and started taking lessons at an early age. His interest in jazz and big band music began while studying engineering in college. After graduating, he studied jazz guitar with notable Chicago area guitar instructors Frank Dawson, David Pitts and Rob Curtis. He joined the Yorkville Big Band in 1998. Outside of his rhythm responsibilities in the big band, Mark enjoys playing in small group settings whenever the opportunity arises. He also pursues audio engineering interests and has recorded CDs for local groups including the Yorkville Big Band, Seymour’s Big Band and The Jay Witcher Orchestra.
