Born and raised in Dallas (seems like one of the few natives still in Dallas), Mark received his degree in finance from George Washington University in Washington, DC. He got involved with sustainability through a construction project at his church. The church asked him if he wanted to lead the effort to build their new sanctuary “green,” and get it LEED certified. Mark said, “What’s LEED?” And they said, “That’s what we want you to figure out.” Mark started working at HDR shortly after that time. He tries to live as sustainability as possible but understands he still has work to do. Outside of the office, Mark spends his free time running and exercising, enjoying football season, volunteering at his church and spending quality time with family.
