Mark follows the fine
American tradition: a person moves to the US, learns the language,
takes any job he can find, complains bitterly, but perseveres. Mark
also writes flash fiction, so he knows how to express himself
concisely, before the reader gets bored. He loves to travel so he can
compare foreign countries to America and congratulate himself on the
fine choice he made 32 years ago when he came here. He loves his family
so he can get emotional support and an audience for complaints. He
loves his cat, especially when the cat bites him on his ankles. Above
all, he loves his readers, in sickness and in health.
He has his technical side,
too. Just look at his 11 US patents. Or check out his
photography, translations and web design.
