His Maker's Mark

"If God is for me, who can be against me." Romans 8:31

Son of God. Son of Grace. Brotherman. Easy Like Sunday Morning.


Mark was all about his friends (barkada) and he made his friends priority over everything. Being Mark's friend meant you were just as important as his family. Naturally unselfish and selfless, Mark always lent a hand and most importantly, always took friends in that were in need of help into his home and whether it was for the night or for a while, Mark made sure that they were taken care of. In return, Mark's friends always made sure to return the favor in anyway they can. Mark was also part of many circle of friends and often intertwined, intermingled and brought people together and even if you weren't part of his circle, he always found a way to make sure that you felt welcome. Mark is the greatest friend one can ever have.


Mark was born in the Philippines on September 16th, 1978. Mark and his older siblings moved to the United States to join their mom in 1990. Not long after, Mark soon became obsessed with music, scrimped and saved and got his first drum kit. From then on, he knew he had a mission to fullfill. Mark spent his time playing with other musicians in high school until he finally decided to start a band with close friends called Overdose. From Overdose, Mark moved on to other projects and played sessions until he finally landed on his master project, Fatmark. This was the band that truly catapulted Mark into rock star status and eventually was the final band that he ends up being truly a part of. He poured everything he had into creating, recording and playing Fatmark. Fatmark is Mark's musical legacy and absolute masterpiece.


Recorded, mixed and mastered by the band. A culmination of hard work, passion and intent, Fatmark's self-titled 2002 EP is the only official release by the band. The full EP is available for streaming on all streaming platforms including Apple Music, Spotify and TIDAL. You can hear 30 second previews of each song below.
