If I could live by any mantra, it would be a quote from Abraham Lincoln…
“Whatever you are, be a good one.”
I grew up on a 500 Acre Farm between Kitzmiller, MD and Swanton, MD. I have incredible parents who have always supported me. I have one older sibling who holds two engineering degrees and was always the whiz kid of the family. I was always the creative monster — breaking things to put them back together, drawing on everything, and eventually taking over 2 years to pick a major while in college. It’s something I’m glad I did because they were all things that helped me find out who I was and what I liked. But most importantly it helped make me, me.
I graduated college with a bachelors degree in economics. I did what everyone would tell you to do. Parents, teachers, professors — Two years after college and taking the safe option, I was told that in 2 weeks I didn’t have a job anymore. From that moment on, I decided that the only person I wanted to take a bet on me, was myself. I decided to do something I loved.
I’ve been into videography since I was a kid. It was something that everyone pushed me away from — you know the old saying, that’s not a real job. My parents and girlfriend were extremely supportive – just like always. I’ve had the chance to work with small businesses and large corporations. I continue to be humbled with how lucky I am to wake up everyday to do what I love.
My wife and I have lived in Garrett County since college and enjoy being close to our families. After starting Marks Media I realized that I was going to travel quite often and decided to leave the decision up to her. My wife is a Nurse Practitioner and ultimately decided she wanted to practice rural medicine. We’ve since bought our first home in Deep Creek Lake with our number of poodles best left uncounted.
I look forward to meeting you and helping tell your story to the world.
