Mark was born in Beijing and grew up in the US. He was brought over due to his poor performance in the rigid asian education system. Luckily for him, he discovered photography and the freedom it allowed. Much to his parents' dismay, his new found hobby meant skipping more classes and equally poor performance in school. It wasn't until he won his first big award and landing the prestigious photo internship at The Washington Post that they finally thought he might be onto to something. Two decades later, he is putting off growing up in favor of traveling and photography.
This path has taken many twist and turns, from photojournalism to fashion and advertising. Never at more than one place for too long, his work reflect his attitude on life. Don't get bored, keep moving forward, and never stop learning. Mark's images have appeared in Vogue, Elle, GQ, Numero, The New York Times, Washington Post and many others. He is the grand prize winner of the Surface Avant Guardian and an alumni of the Eddie Adams Workshop. When there is time, he can be found surfing, riding motorcycles and shooting personal work.
