A Chicago native, he moved to St. Louis in 1979 and quickly became a Cardinals fan for life after the 1982 World Series.

Mark is a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) and his reviews are heard on KMOX, BXR radio in Columbia, Missouri and “Great Day St. Louis” on KMOV channel 4. He’s also a member of the Broadcast Journalist Television Association (BJTA).

He’s an avid cyclist, fisherman, hunter and is passionate about music—especially Bruce Springsteen. Mark is married and has two children, two dogs, three cats—and a very powerful vacuum.
