With a passion for groundbreaking and innovative design, Mark’s talent and deep understanding of complex geometric forms makes him an asset to any project design team looking to create iconic architecture.  Mark’s mastery of the most advanced modeling and parametric design tools allows him to bring even the most complicated concepts to life.
Mark’s technical agility with a wide variety of modeling and rendering computer software programs, combined with his ability to easily visualize complicated forms in 3 dimensions, allows for even the most rudimentary concept to be realized quickly in 3 dimensions. But Mark’s skills are not limited only to design and modeling.  His aptitude for still renderings, animation, post production, and video editing allow him to carry a concept through all phases of early development and presentation - from concept sketch to finished video animation flythrough.  His unique skillset is particularly honed to keep up with the rapid pace of high profile international design in the 21st Century.
Since joining MANICA Architecture after graduation in spring of 2014, Mark has led the 3D design and modeling efforts for the entire office. He has been the primary designer and modeler for the exterior design of the new Golden State Warriors Arena in San Francisco, CA as well as the new Los Angeles Stadium for the Chargers and Raiders in Carson, CA.  Mark’s self-initiative to learn new software and rendering techniques have set new benchmarks and standards for the entire company.  His proficiency in multiple programs have allowed for a rapid and more iterative design process which has had a directly positive impact on the project ownership’s ability to more easily visualize the various design concepts and options.
Mark graduated from the University of Kansas School of Architecture Design and Planning in 2014 with a Master of Architecture degree.  One of his university projects was featured in an exhibit celebrating the 100th year of the School of Architecture. His final year of schooling was spent in Paris, France where he was awarded an internship with Ateliers Jean Nouvel. While working at Jean Nouvel’s office, he was primarily responsible for leading the 3D modeling of the 860,000 SF European Patent Office tower in the Netherlands. Mark’s experience also includes multiple summer internships at various other architectural companies.
