Mark grew up in the East Bay but left to go to UC San Diego for college. There, he met his beautiful wife, Mira. After receiving his call into ministry, he gave up the pursuit of dental
school but continued to work bi-vocationally as a research chemist in the biotech industry. He eventually enrolled at Talbot Theological Seminary where he graduated with a Masters of
Divinity. Mark started Kairos Church in 2006 and served as the founding pastor for 5 years until sensing a call to return back to the Bay Area to start Radiance. In his free time, he loves to play golf and surf, go hiking, as well as spend quality time with family. He is a die-hard Bay Area sports fan and roots faithfully for the Niners, Giants, and Warriors!
