"Mark has both an effortless charm and riveting intensity that brings living breathing life to his characters." - John Dowdle, Director - Devil, The Pougheepsie Tapes


I have worked with Mark for the last few months. He is the real deal. He has intelligence and passion. He is giving as an actor. There is clarity in his work that enables him to easily handle comedy or drama. He takes risks in improvisation. And one of the most important things in my book: he is professional. Always on time. Always prepared. Always ready to go with the flow. Interest and time working with Mark is time well spent." - Stephen Tobolowsky, Actor / Teacher, Groundhog's Day, Thelma and Louise, Glee, Mississippi Burning

Always willing to experiment, Mark has an uncanny ability to investigate and illuminate the work with inventiveness, creativity and imagination. He is a truly dedicated artist who make the process invigorating and I have been privileged to see my own work grow as a result of his contributions." And for good measure: " And, if I do say so myself, he's sure easy on the eyes." - Aaron Henne, Writer, Director, and Creative Director - Theatre Dybbuk


"Mark brought his "A" game on day one. Some directors find this intimidating, but I was thrilled and relieved that my leading actor hit the ground running. And although he consistently delivered in rehearsal and on stage with polish and vulnerability, Mark continued to ask for notes. This is the most a director could ever want from an actor." - Patricia McKee, Director

"Mark approaches his roles with a fearless confidence that any actor should be envious of. Seriously, I've seen this guy do some crazy shit. I've watched him play a feral cat. I've watched him get his head sawed off. I've watched him play ghosts, politicians, lunatics - The important thing is, I kept watching. Mark's ability to capture a role and  live comfortably inside a strange world is mesmerizing; as a writer, this is the kind of person you want to trust your dialogue to. Mark's choices on stage make me look smarter than I really am." - Todd Lepre, Director / Producer
