He is a graduate of Yale University, worked as an actor for 10 years, both On and Off Broadway, and in independent films. His love of travel and food has taken him around the world. He hopes to share his love of world cuisine with you!

We look forward to plenty of yummy food tips from Mark through his show. Perhaps he can prepare a meal for one of our Pod Squad get togethers.
