Mark joined the CCBS kitchen team in 2010 and became the kitchen manager in 2013. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the kitchen with his background in running restaurants and in owning a catering company. Mark also has an extensive knowledge of gardening which is appreciated when he shares mouthwatering treats from his garden for all to sample.

“Food has always been important to me… from ground to the plate. Nutrition is a vital element in nurturing healthy bodies and minds. Middle school boys are at an important time in their lives where their bodies are growing like never before and they can really pack the calories away. It is my role to give them the fuel they need.”

Let me share a middle school story…

“I asked my mother what she remembered about my middle school years, and she said, ‘Well, Mark, I remember that you were always working at the restaurant.’ … and I still am today, so I guess that says something about me. I have always liked being around food and obviously I knew it from an early age.”
