About Mark

I’ve been working for New York State since 1986 and writing about Disney for MousePlanet.com since 2003. I live with my wife and son in the suburbs of Albany, NY.

My son, a.k.a. The Kid, was a micropreemie, so I spend a good amount of time each year raising money for the March of Dimes, an organization that has succeeded in eradicating polio, has fought birth defects in general, and is now focused on improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

I’ve restarted the blog many times, in slightly varying formats, to see if I can actually make something stick. It seems that I’ve fallen into writing mostly about my experiences with our first son, Benjamin, who was also a micropreemie but did not survive, and starting to write about The Kid, with a little of everything else thrown in. Follow along with me and see where this goes.
