Classical singing, photography, videography, video production, audio recording and music composition have been major avocations of Mark’s for many years. Mark was introduced to photography as a teenager - sharing a darkroom with his brother. Over the years he has taken well over 100,000 photos of a variety of subject ranging from people and events to animals and nature. Mark recently was affiliated with the Scary Cow indie film co-op in San Francisco, where he composed music scores for, edited and acted in a number of short film projects. He has studied classical voice with a number of teachers — and currently has the pleasure of studying with James Toland. Time not spent by Mark on his various avocations has been spent as an executive with GE, Siemens, PG&E and the Electric Power Research Institute. Mark lives with his partner of 24 years, Victor Libbey, in Oakland, CA.
