Name: Mark 

Nicknames: Marco 

Hometown: Cottage Grove, MN 

Music Background: My mom and dad had a guitar in their closet if that counts. I can’t really explain why I got into guitar. Some things resonate with a person and guitar does that for me. 

Musical Influence: Early influences were Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and Scorpions. But it has grown and changed to bands like The Offspring, Foo Fighters, and today's bands, like My Chemical Romance and AFI. 

Favorite Songs: "Semi-Charmed Kind of Life" by Third Eye Blind has always struck a chord in me. "Cough Syrup" by Young the Giant also gets honorable mention! 

Favorite Bands: It changes all the time, so I'll need to update this on occasion. Today, I'll say AJR

Favorite Quotes: “Can’t be king of the world if you’re slave to the grind.”
