He started out working in the electrical firm of one of his brothers in Guelph, Ontario during school summers, and began his formal schooling at Memorial Composite High School in Sydney Mines. In 1996, Mark moved to Canberra, Australia. There he completed his apprenticeship, gaining experience in residential and commercial electrical services, including elevators, escalators, and data cabling.
