Mark is a classically trained musician, which helps in his understanding of the nuances of arranging and scoring for the big (and small) screen. Mark wrote, arranged, scored and recorded the music for the documentary "Akron Women: Another Look At History" for PBS and recently won a National Telly Award for his work on the PBS special, "The Rise and Fall of the YWCA of Summit County." His score for the 2009 PBS special "Final Edition: Journalism According to Jack and Jim Knight" won an Emmy Award. Mark received his Masters Degree in Music Technologies from the University of Akron and is currently finishing a Masters degree in Music Theory at Kent State. He is the owner of Great Tunes Multimedia Inc. and has taught advanced audio for film/video at Stark State Technical College, and currently teaches Music Theory and Music Production at Kent State's Commercial Music Program in North Canton, Ohio.
