Mark Needle was born in Los Angeles, California. His parents were both teachers, so when he was growing up he was often told, "Mark, you're getting a degree."
He started performing with one theater class in his elementary school, and it has been a downward spiral ever since. After doing some comedies, he joined his high school choir, which lead to his involvement in barbershop singing and musical theater. All the cool kids were doing it. He started getting quicker fixes when he switched from plays to on-camera work. While working many of the most random jobs in order to sustain this lifestyle, he graduated from college and was invited to work for a couple of summer stock programs.
Currently: Mark continues to reside in Los Angeles, creating original web content with an ever-growing motley crew. He's also begun writing children's books, like this one, this one, and this one.
