In addition, he was the morning air personality and program director at KULO radio in Alexandria. Did you know that he is a certified stage hypnotist as well. Mark has trained with the best over the years. He was certified through Bill O'Connell, one of the best hypnotists is the country!
Mark got his start in television at KXJB in Fargo, ND back in the early 1990s. He has also done weather in Joplin, MO at KSNF-TV.

He also spent three years at KZLT and KCNN in Grand Forks, ND.
Mark left KSAX to become chief meteorologist at KDSM in Des Moines, IA and KGAN-TV in Cedar Rapids, IA. While there, his wife, Tracey, lost both of her parents. One positive thing did come out of the loss, however, in that Mark's brother and Tracey's sister are now married after some matchmaking done by Tracey and Mark. The two are living happily ever after in Brooten on a hobby farm. As a result, Mark and his wife wanted to get back to Minnesota to be near family. His parents still live in Willmar where Mark grew up all of his life. His other siblings are sprinkled around Minnesota in Elbow Lake, Brooten, Fergus Falls, Ramsey, and Wayzata.
Mark received his Bachelor of Science degree from Mississippi State University. He also has Bachelor of Science degrees in Print Journalism from Minnesota State University--Moorhead, and a Bachelor of Science degree from Charter Oak State College in Broadcast Communications. He recently finished up his Master's degree in History from American Public University. He is full members of both the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association. He has done graduate work in meteorology from Mississippi State University and the University of Northern Iowa.
Mark has a daughter, Rachel who he is very proud of her accomplishments. He and his wife are happy to be back in Alexandria and look foward to seeing all of you around in the community. In his sparetime, Mark enjoys playing guitar, writing songs, reading, learning new things, and spending time with family.
