For over three decades Mark has demonstrated unparalleled expertise as a media systems designer, sound engineer, systems contractor, technical director, and operations director for large-scale, technology-intensive projects. He has significant experience in the design and integration of sophisticated audio and lighting systems for projects such as “Disney on Ice,” having designed and installed systems for 300-city world tours. He was Director of Audio Production for Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey’s Circus worldwide for 8 years which has translated into his exceptional ability to oversee large sports and recreation projects such as the University of Cincinnati’s Fifth Third Arena remodel and multiple sports venues at Penn State University including recent upgrades to both Beaver Stadium and the Bryce Jordan Center. He has managed projects for both public and private higher education institutions, hospitals and medical centers, boardroom expansions, market operations centers, network and security operations centers and corporate training facilities. Mark can occasionally be found on the weekends mixing a number of local bands just to keep his “ears” in tune, working in his garden, or out on the golf course if the weather is nice (or even not so nice).
