As a child actor, he appeared in productions at Youth Theatre Northwest, Issaquah Village Theatre, Renton Civic Theatre and the Mukilteo Community Theatre.
Mark received his Jewish education at Herzl-Ner Tamid Conservative Congregation on Mercer Island. His Bar Mitzvah was a particular source of pride. Summers at camps Solomon Schechter and Ramah further strengthened his sense of Jewish identity.
In high school, Mark excelled scholastically and discovered many interests. He joined DECA and Junior Achievement, the student marketing and business organizations, where he developed his strong business and leaderships skills. Sponsored by Puget Power, Mark was president of three JA companies, leading each to award-winning success. For his work in Junior Achievement, Mark received local, national and international recognition.

He was a member of WashPIRG, the consumer and environmental advocacy group and AIPAC, the American Israeli Affairs Committee. He was a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and a tutor and mentor to inner-city children.
While in college, Mark spent a year studying at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Just like everywhere else, he made a name for himself in every arena he visited, from editing his professor’s book on terrorism to nearly sitting in on a meeting with Yassir Arafat and other members of the Palestinian Authority. He loved his year living there. He traveled extensively throughout the region, carrying his stories and experiences in his backpack as he moved from one country to another, one phase of life to the next.

For Mark, life was a journey. He rappelled off cliffs, river-rafted, hiked and skied. With his warm smile, he possessed the unique gift of drawing others to him and of bringing people together.
The suddenness of his illness and death stunned his family and shocked the community. After two months of suffering with unresolved back pain, Mark was diagnosed with metastatic testicular cancer. He died 10 days later.
