Mark’s earliest creative memory was performing exploratory surgery on his teddy bear with a Cub Scout pocket knife.
After sketching and writing his way through high school and then snagging a BS in journalism from UF, he opted for an ad career. Today, Mark performs surgery on a variety of CNP client communication ailments, helping their brands achieve full health and mobility. As creative director, his main responsibilities include hiring people more talented than himself, maintaining a safe space for them to take risks and then getting the hell out of their way. Mark enjoys marathon Sunday morning bike rides, honey in his coffee, Wendell Berry short stories and, yes, living without an electric can opener.
