As a pediatrician/physician during the day, Mark has faced life and death situations his entire career. The thought, though, of standing on a stage in front of people absolutely terrified him. He has studied acting here in Pittsburgh through Donna Belajac casting, Little Lake theater and the Nancy Mosser Agency. During the Summer 2018 he worked on a project with Pittsburgh New Works Festival and November 2018 performed in the stage production “A Christmas Carol”. He thanks his acting coach Patricia Fuchel for teaching him to have courage on stage and his wife Valerie for giving him the freedom to explore his dream.
