Born in Adelaide, as a young boy his ears and eyes were introduced to the music and styling of Elvis Presley. Immediately loving this phenomenon, Mark immersed himself in everything Elvis and soon found he had a natural talent for imitating the King. It wasn't until 2004 that he decided to seriously and professionally portray Elvis. His first appearance was a benefit for a family member with leukemia and hasn't stopped performing since - growing with strength and popularity as his shows became larger.

Mark got his chance to be on the "world stage" in 2007, when he won the title of 'Grand Champion Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist for South Pacific' at the Wintersun Rock 'n' Roll festival. This festival played host to the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Competition preliminary round, and Mark was flown to Memphis to perform, much to his delight. He won the title again in 2008 and was placed in the top 10 in the world, performing in the finals of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Competition presented by Elvis Presley Enterprises. Mark has also taken the title in 2010 for Elvis Festivals in USA, and Canada. In 2011 he was placed in the Top 5 professional Elvis Tribute Artists performing in the world today. He was also awarded the very first "Spirit of Elvis" award, presented by Elvis Presley Enterprises at the 2011 Ultimate contest in Memphis.
