WMAR 2 News Reporter

Mark joined WMAR-2 News team in June 2018. Although he’s a night owl, he can be found every morning reporting on the stories of the day on Good Morning Maryland.

Mark was born in Philadelphia, the birthplace of the U.S., and now he’s enjoying living in Baltimore, the birthplace of the National Anthem.

Mark made the trip from the City of Brotherly Love to Charm City with reporting jobs in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and York-Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He likes meeting new people, and reporting on stories that can help the community and make a difference.

As a fan of cheesesteaks, hoagies, soft pretzels, and water ice, Mark is now in search of the best Baltimore has to offer: the perfect crabcake, an egg custard snowball, and any other of your favorites you might recommend.

In his spare time, Mark can be found at an amusement park riding the biggest and fastest roller coasters. An avid roller coaster rider, he’s ridden more than 250 roller coasters across the country.

If you’ve got a story idea, or a recommendation for a great place to eat, contact Mark on Facebook or twitter.
