Mark has been teaching screenwriting at Trebas since 2015. He believes in an open and collaborative classroom environment that empowers his students to tell the stories that matter to them. Over the course of his professional career as an instructor, editor, and writer, Mark has worked on over 150 scripts, and revels in the creative challenge of developing a wide variety of student story concepts into short film screenplays.

Mark believes that story is a universal and essential element of humanity. His approach to storytelling values and utilizes an understanding of the inherently connected dynamics between individual psychology, collective society, and story. He seeks to use this understanding to not only give his students effective tools to use as screenwriters, but for his and his students’ work to help bring about a better, more compassionate world.
