Mark was born & raised in Woodland, CA. Growing up in the 1950s was an easygoing time in Mark's life. He took Mrs. Johnson's art classes in Junior High and more art classes later at Woodland High School. He worked at a gas station during those high school years. Mark began his landscape design and parking lot sweeping businesses in 1976. He is the father of 2 children and 3 grandchildren.
Mark's favorite color is seen in his red sports car, red work truck and red antique tow truck.
Mark bought his first antique gas pump in 1999 at a garage sale in his neighborhood. This led Mark to collect more automotive antiques and convert his entire home into the 1950s automotive museum that we see today. It developed into a "labor of love and a butt load of fun !!"
