Mark is an author, teacher, and meaning and purpose specialist who has a Master of Counselling, is currently a Ph.D candidate in Philosophy of Education, and instructor at Simon Fraser University and City University of Seattle.  

Mark has spent most of his adult life learning about the nature of existence and what makes us human.

Mark remembers that even at the age of 10 he contemplated nothingness, not knowing then that this would eventually lead him to his deep studies in philosophy and a profound shift in his own view of life and the world.  

Over the past 15 years, Mark has helped countless people of all walks of life come to core realizations that have created major transformations in their life journey.

His ability to genuinely empathize with his clients yet synthesize his knowledge to provide insightful guidance is truly rare.   At the heart of his approach is applying existential psychology, narrative approaches, and hermeneutic philosophies to our modern day problems.

An essential part of living a full life is to acknowledge the underlying absurdity of life and to bring back the awe and wonder in our own lives everyday.

Mark’s book The Power of Boredom is now available.
