A big weather enthusiast, Mark enjoys chasing all types of weather when the opportunity arises. From tornadoes to hurricanes to winter storms, you will find Mark eager to throw himself into all types of weather to experience it and to capture it on film to share with the world. He has been chasing storms in the eastern U.S. since 2009, and has travelled to the Plains to chase every spring since 2011.
