Mark started his career at the age of 17 as a barber in New York City, where he learned to cut hair from his father. His father was one of the best barbers in the city. He won several contests and taught many beginners who are now very successful in their profession. While working full time, Mark graduated from St John's University with Bachelor Degree in Computer Science and Business Minor. Upon graduation, due to economic downturn, Mark decided to stay in the hair styling industry and realized that he is passionate about creating new looks and styles that leave customers amazed with the results.
Mark is the founder of Skillman Barber Shop. Before opening his own barbershop Mark worked in various locations with extremely talented and highly skilled barbers and hair stylists for over 10 years. Over the time, Mark acquired many of the techniques and skills but also saw the flaws that most barbers, hairstylists or customers didn’t pick up on. He learned from those flaws and developed his own unique technique for hair cutting and styling. These styling techniques and skills deliver a precise and consistent haircut to every customer young and old, leaving each one of those customers coming back for more.
