Bio

Mark led the effort to create the world’s first collegiate eSports program at a public university – UC Irvine. Working closely with student leaders, administrators, faculty, and industry partners, Mark built a business plan that is cost-neutral to the university and that broadly approaches the world of eSports through the four pillars of competition, research, community and entertainment. Mark has a B.S. in psychobiology from UCLA and a MBA from Cal State Fullerton’s Mihaylo College of Business and Economics.
