In 1994, Mark began working at the "dawn" of the wireless business and the digital age. At that time, less than one in ten Americans owned a cell phone. Recognizing early-on that cell phones would soon become a necessity rather than a luxury, Mark began a company that owned and operated cell tower infrastructure which is the backbone of wireless networks. In 2007, Mark began incorporating renewable energy systems such as wind turbines and solar panels into the design of cell tower infrastructure. His efforts and energies have made wireless "cell coverage" possible for millions of people throughout the mid-Atlantic region.
In 2003, Mark founded Gray's Field Foundation, a non-profit organization that, among other things, saved an historic African American baseball field from development. Today, "Gray's Field" in Owings, Maryland, serves as an athletic field for hundreds of children and families in Calvert County. Moreover, the Gray Family continues to hold their annual picnic at Gray's Field the original home to the African American League's "Owings Eagles."
