Mark graduated from Wheaton College in 1987 with a degree in Computer Science and Math and worked for DuPont as a Systems Analyst.
After marrying Nancy in 1991, they moved to East Tennessee in 1995 for Mark to attend Moody Aviation. In 1996 Nancy began working at Doe River Gorge as Director of Guest Relations and served in that role until 2000.
In 1997, Mark had the summer off from Moody and answered the call to computerize the registration process which Nancy had been doing her best to keep up with on paper. To make a long story short, he never made it back to Moody that fall! From just three or four computers and a homegrown registration system, Doe River's technical infrastructure has grown significantly over the years and Mark continues to be the go-to person for anything IT. There are now dozens of computers, a server, site-wide network, database and reports, audio/visual systems, phone system, radios, paging, and more. Mark also has the distinction of overseeing the railroad operations and maintenance.
Mark and Nancy have two children, Jon (2001) and Kate (2003).
