About Mark Souza
"I will take you places you've never been and show you things you've never seen. Some may make you cringe, some may make you laugh, and others may make you lose sleep, but you won't be bored. And at the end, like any good roller coaster, you'll want to get on again for another ride. That's my mission." - Mark Souza
