Mark has been recognized for his work internationally and was nominated for an Emmy award in 1998 for his principal role in the Fox Network commercial, “Feet”. Born without arms , Mark was raised to see himself as an equal in society and to value independence.
By age nine, Mark was attempting to create his own music, but choosing an instrument would prove to be a challenge. For a while he played trombone in the school band, then his dad brought home an old guitar he had found on a job site. He would lay the guitar on the ground, supporting the neck with whatever he could get his feet on. He would strum with his left foot and make chords with his right.
Mark has raised millions for children's charities, he has appeared on Real People, the Mike Douglas Show, and Regis Philbin. Mark has appeared in several commercials and reality shows.
