Teaching Philosophy

Mark aims to foster growth in the sniper community, relentlessly pushing himself and his peers to perform at the highest levels. He believes in open communication between teams and the communities they protect, and has devoted himself to helping others bridge that gap. With an emphasis on protecting soft targets, he has developed courses to fill the need that exist at public venues across the world where minimum security could be targeted for attack by domestic or international terrorists. Along with his co-instructors, they have established a standard for SWAT teams who deploy proactively at their public venues.
