MARK OLAN DREESEN | COO
Mark was born in Kiel, Germany and worked as a dancer and model in Europe. Later on he travelled to Thailand, where other relatives live and continued modelling, which was then impossible due to his love for thai food, and his habit to eat as much as humanly possible. He also lived and worked for over 2 years in New York. Now living between Berlin in Rome he’s currently working on his first screenplay/movie. When not working (which is N-E-V-E-R) he likes to travel and visit the most amazing places around the world, experiment in the kitchen, read and collecting all sorts of books, and going to the Actors Center Rome to spend time with his like-minded colleagues and his mentor and teacher Michael Margotta. For more information see his official website.
