Mark has always loved the world of comedy. He has done a few comical roles in plays in college and helped start Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo's own improv team called Smile&Nod. It's taken-off in a big way since it was established and that's something he and his friends are really proud of. Mark loves writing and making sketches and Lurksquad was created for us, for you, therefore coming back to us, so thank you. Currently Mark is doing improv in Hollywood at iowest. He is enjoying watching the craft of others as he improvs his own. Mark is not typically a funny person in everyday life, but loves performing. And improv helps get the good stuff flowing. He'll just a keep on a truckin' and a lovin'. Good day folks.
