Mark grew up in the hills of the Southwestern Pennsylvania Mountains in a coal-mining and farming family, where he was raised in the backwoods hunting tradition.
A shy teenager, Mark passed up a college wrestling scholarship, but he got a nursing degree, and worked several years in hospital administration and psychology. Life changed the day he started his own refrigerated transportation service company, initially based in the Philadelphia/New York corridor. Today, with 57 operating locations managing over 75,000 shipments a month, it’s the largest company of its kind in the US, and one of the biggest in the world. Next, Mark started a technology company providing remote tracking and monitoring of containerized fresh and frozen cargo shipments around in the world.
Applying the same business principles, Mark now has a number of hunting properties where he has set up a high-end QDM program. He enjoys all aspects of hunting and pursues his passion all over the country with the same zeal he had as a kid in the backwoods of Pennsylvania.
Mark has a beautiful family with three daughters and a loving wife.
