Mark gained experience directing various programs over 10 summers of camp, including first-year campers, rock climbing, high ropes and team building. He was able to apply this experience to an educational setting at The Outdoor School in Marble Falls, Texas. While there he gained a great appreciation for the process and results that experiential education can yield, as well as the incredible people who dedicate themselves to the experiential philosophy. In his free time, Mark enjoys driving through the mountains, tamales and folk music.
