Mark D. Shannon was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts and grew up just north of Boston. Mark’s outer explorations have included back streets since boyhood, when he accompanied his father on business trips and developed an ease within diverse circles. Mark’s inner explorations were nurtured by his mother, an academic with a voice rich in perspectives, who took time not only to teach but to listen to her children. Mark’s present course includes passing on those traditions of good parenting to his son and daughter, now ages eight and five. He has a deep love for creating art, for travel, and especially for his children, who he currently resides with in San Francisco, California.
