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 over time and changed to bands like The Offspring, Foo Fighters, and My Chemical Romance.

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 Artic Monkeys 

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