Mark was born in Florida, grew up in Virginia and has lived in North Carolina since 1982 — except for four years in the US Navy. Mark attended Duke where he met his wife, Helen. They married in 1988 and have four children: Kevin (grad student at UNC), Sarah (undergrad at Duke), and Will and Stephen (both at Cary High School).
After 25-years of consulting at Kimley-Horn, Mark retired and stays busy helping at the church, serving on the board of Dorcas Ministries, reading, trying to stay fit, and enjoying his family. Lately, he’s discovered that he enjoys cooking.
