Like a lot of individuals in this business, Mark has won some awards over the past 24+ years but the best part of the career is meeting individuals who put their trust in them to share their stories.
For him, Mark will always recall a special boy when he worked in Cleveland. Dylan was twelve-years-old and had periodic cancer. He was a giant wrestling fan and he wanted to meet John Cena. Following a few phone calls, we made it happen at a local hospital. Dylan was so delighted and it was a tremendous honor to be part of that memory with his family before he died.
