Mark was born and raised just outside of Redding in Palo Cedro, CA. He comes from a big family with five siblings. In his early adulthood, he has lived all over the California coast from San Francisco to San Diego and all the way to Boulder, CO. Mark decided Redding needed to be graced with his presence again as he moved back to attend biomedical engineering school at a local university. Mark loves fly fishing in our beautiful local rivers and lakes and rock climbing. His favorite Fall River beer is Hexagenia IPA.
