A native of South Africa, Mark has played polo much of his life and has trained horses (2 of the horses Mark trained have won Best Playing Pony in the US Open) and taught players for the last 20 years. Growing up in a family of polo players and horse trainers, he played polo competitively in South Africa from an early age. As a 4 goal professional, Mark played worldwide, which eventually brought him to the US to play. Now a 3 goal pro, Mark is actively engaged in growing the sport of polo in Houston, Texas.

In conjunction with the Houston Polo Club, Mark started the Step Up program, which enables players to follow a step-by-step progression to gradually grow their polo skills.

In 2012, with the help of Barlee Flanders, he started a nationally competitive Interscholastic program, for which he coaches and provides horses. He is the Director of the USPA Regional Polo Center Program at the Houston Polo Club.
