More than 20 years ago Mark's mother gifted him his first Native American flute and he has been playing and composing on it ever since. He has written several hundred tunes largely inspired by nature and many of these soothing songs are based on melodies created with the NA flute. His original performances feature selections from his debut CD entitled "Universe Dance" as well as tunes from his upcoming CD "Celestial Spirits" which features NA flute, guitar and percussion.
Mark performed at the second annual Native Rhythms Festival in 2010 and he is honored to be included with some of the top NA flute performers in the world on this compilation CD. For more info click on image >>>

In 2009, Mark performed as guitarist with world premier NA flutist R. Carlos Nakai and multi-Grammy nominee world percussionist Will Clipman. During that same summer Mark traveled across the U.S. and journeyed for several months all over the west. He has also hiked very extensively throughout more than 30 of our country's most beautiful National Parks and has accumulated video and photo imagery of these majestic places. His ultimate vision has been to present a live show of his own music performed with a backdrop of his moving visual images of nature. In 2012 he has finally transformed that dream into reality.
