Our senior writer, Mark lives to tell stories – people’s stories, organizations’ stories, and culture’s stories. He is fascinated by what makes people tick, and what ticks them off. He has interviewed more than 1,000 people in a career as an award-winning journalist, including Michael Jordan, Sylvester Stallone (yo, Rocky!), Emma Thompson, Bobby McFerrin (don’t worry, be happy), and even a guy who writes for a popular television show about zombies (not the one you’re thinking of).
Mark loves puns (I went shopping for cherries and microphones: bought a bing, bought a boom), movies, TV, music, sports, waterfall hikes, traveling, and hanging out with his family in the Atlanta burbs.
