Ever since Mark was a kid he has been attracted to art.  Early on while in preschool, his teacher would let him go outside and paint in the hallways on the concrete floors with water and brushes and he has been creating art ever since.

Early influences of his were comic books, drag racing  and low riders.  While attending art college he found an interest in graphic design and has been at it ever since.  Photography has been a big part of his career for the last 10 years and he continues to mix to the two crafts together and continues to learn and grow.

With over 20 years in the profession, Mark uses the things around him and the people he meets as inspiration in the design and marketing for The Speed Merchant.
