Out From Under is based on a truly horrific time in Mark’s life. His life was in chaos, his depression was undiagnosed, his brother really had committed suicide, and the financial ruin and instability brought about several suicide attempts.
The fictionalization of his journey enables him to speak on the issues of depression, suicide, childhood abuse, relationships and friendship with humor and heartfelt meaning. Mark has conducted seminars and keynotes on health and nutrition, managed care, and depression for audiences ranging from 20 to 5,000 individuals.
He is currently the Director of Education at a local college in Palm Springs, California. He spends his time in the desert community of Palm Springs, the beach communities of San Diego, and the mountain village of Idyllwild, California.
