Mark continued as a songwriter and performing musician for the next 20 years. In 1992 his early interest in classical music was rekindled and he began to fill the gaps in his classical training which had been interrupted when he entered the popular music field. And so he began the transition from songwriter to composer. In the years that followed, Mark ventured into many interesting compositional situations including writing music for ballet, custom arranging for some of the top horses in the U.S. in the sport of dressage as well as free-standing music for orchestra and concert band.
In the 21st century Mark has become the emerging film composer scoring music for film, documentaries and TV commercials, his most notable works to date being his award-winning orchestral scores for the feature film, A Dance for Bethany and the newly released fantasy film, Magic in the Forest .
