Mark tried to develop skills in multiple languages, such as Portuguese and Korean. Still, he only gained slight abilities to speak in those languages.

Mark’s father introduced him and his brother to computers and computer gaming at a young age, which developed his love and passion for gaming.

  Around his high school age, Mark’s father passed away from a very long fight with cancer. Mark went through a very rough period in his life from this traumatic event and was under a significant amount of stress and depressed feelings.

 After beginning his studies in biomedical engineering at the University of Cincinnati, Mark’s feelings of stress from school led him to drop out. It was around this time that his YouTube platform was created.

How Mark Became One of the Most Recognized Names on YouTube:
