About Him

Overview... hedge fund manager sick and tired of the unfair practices of the Wall Street big banks. He wakes up every morning with one goal in mind:  to shut down fraudulent traders and funds. When he's alerted to a deal that could shine a light on the junk bonds that make up the mid-00s housing bubble, he jumps on board. Earning hundreds of millions of dollars is just a nice by-product.

Personality... blunt, aggressive, and frustrated. Mark is the loudest, angriest guy at his anger management support group. He believes in justice; whether yelling at people who steal taxis or calling out illegal subprime loans, he demands order in his life. He lost his brother at a young age to suicide. As a result, Mark craves fairness and control in the rest of his life. He's the Larry David of the finance world, unafraid to break social norms to fight for what's right.
