Mark grew up in Rock Hill, SC, and graduated from Liberty University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management. His career in insurance began on the company side at the State Auto Insurance Companies’ Greer branch. While underwriting personal and then commercial accounts, he obtained numerous designations (INS, AU, AINS, API). After the location closed, Mark took advantage of the hiatus and expanded his passion for cooking at The Culinary Institute of The Carolinas. Mark has been working on the agency side since 2013 and has added another designation, CISR.
During his free time, Mark loves anything Carolina (GO GAMECOCKS!) as well as spending time with family, friends, traveling, live shows and, of course, cooking.
