Mark grew up outside of Chicago, and after graduating from the University of Illinois, he moved to New York City in 2005 to begin his career in investment banking and private equity. After several years in the industry and serving bi-vocationally on staff at a church plant, he completed a M.Div. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and joined Redeemer in 2016 as a Pastoral Resident serving primarily on the Community Group team. Mark is married to Holly, who hails from Sydney, Australia, and they have two rambunctious boys, Joshua and Justin. When he's not running after his boys, he loves traveling and exploring new cities, watching and playing sports (especially basketball and golf), and reading.
