Background and Military Career:

Attention to detail has been my requirement in my entire career. Over 35 years as an Air Traffic Controller. This includes thirteen months in Baghdad, Iraq and twelve months Kabul, Afghanistan. With this experience, I am able to communicate to people with very little English comprehension.

Initially, I did signings part time in addition to my career as an Air Traffic Controller. I retired from the FAA in November 2007. I then went to Iraq as a contractor for thirteen months to train Iraqi controllers. I returned in December 2008 and started my signing career on a full time basis. However, in March 2011 I was recruited to go to Kabul, Afghanistan for one year. I returned on May 1,2012. I then got serious about my signing career and am now doing this full time: the bulk of my 300 signings as of 1/1/13 have been completed in 2012.

“I had a closing with Mark as the notary. The deal was very difficult. Mark went above and beyond the call of duty as kept his schedule open to accommodate my buyer and then drove the package to Federal Express to make sure that the deal closed on time. You should be proud to have Mark on your team!!” Cindy Archer, Fidelity National Title

I would absolutely recommend Mark to any company looking for a professional who knows his documents and does not hesitate to ask questions when something doesn’t look right with them. Mark caught issues with the documents prior to the appt which later made for a smooth closing. We will definitely use Mark on every signing we have in the area. His knowledge, attention to detail and professionalism are the kind of qualities we look for in a notary. —Debbie Nicoletti from Phoenician Closings on 2/20/2013

Mark was incredible! very professional, friendly and timely. Thank you Mark! —Beth Blackburn from AB Settlement Group on 3/1/2013

Should you call me?

I am truly available 24/7/365 meaning if someone needs to sign a 3am I can do it with a little notice. That doesnʼt mean call me at 130am for the 3am signing but give me a little notice. I prefer not dealing with low-ball companies that want to offer $65 for a last-minute closing an hour away with fax backs – please donʼt call me.

I do business with many great companies and look forward to working with many more. I will provide references on request.
