Mark is a trusted professional who masterfully restores iconic vintage furniture from recognized Mid-Century Modern designers, such as Herman Miller, Paul Frankl, Charles and Ray Eames, and many others, back to their original state. As a repair and restoration specialist for antique furniture, he is exceptional at bringing new life, functionality, and elegance to centuries-old pieces from famous makers such as George Hepplewhite, Josef Danhauser, Thomas Chippendale, and many others. These types of well-crafted, exquisitely detailed, and quality constructed designs stand the test of time and are luxury at its best.
Attention to detail and meticulous care has earned him a well-deserved reputation as one of the most sought-after craftsmen in the field. Celebrities such as Harold Matzner, Bob Hope, and even the renowned Frank Sinatra have treasured his work.
From the time he was sixteen, Mark delighted in repairing objects through mechanical restoration. As his passion progressed, so did his fascination for restoring collectables that transcend the boundaries of time and style. The best part for him is seeing history come back to life.

When away from the workshop Mark enjoys making music with local bands, using a variety of instruments that he handcrafted himself. Music is an integral part of his life and helps to stimulate his creativity, which translates into successful fine restorations of exceptional antiques, artifact preservation, and quality wood furniture repair and refinishing projects.

Treasures from the past are no different from other works of art in terms of rarity, fine craftsmanship, and covetousness.
