Mark is from the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Land of amazing natural wonders but also the land of a terrible drug epidemic. Growing up in a suburban nuclear family, everything was as it should be until Mark discovered drugs and alcohol around the age of 14. What started as experimentation gradually became addiction until his family intervened and he sought treatment at the ages of 17, 19, 28, 30 and finally 35. With a couple slips Mark has maintained sobriety for much of the last 7 years and attributes everything good in his life to that. Along with maintaining his own sobriety he also helps others with theirs. In his free time Mark enjoys playing the banjo, screen printing and traveling around his adopted home of Costa Rica with his lovely wife and dog.
