Born in Dallas, Mark graduated in 1980 and again in 1985 from the University of North Texas with degrees in music performance. He was a member of the Dallas Brass before becoming principal tubist with the Sacramento Symphony. There, he toured as a soloist and took on duties as personnel manager.

He taught at the University of the Pacific, the University of North Texas, Oklahoma City University, Southern Methodist University, and at the University of Texas at Arlington.
