"I really get most excited about creating space and manipulating light and form at a particular human scale that feels right, and that comforts and inspires the people who will live in those spaces."

As an architect from a family of educators, Mark engages others with his thoughtfulness, creativity and straightforward manner. Mark’s early career experience as a middle school teacher in New York City continues to inform his collaborative and inclusive approach to the design of spaces for learning.
