Mark was born and raised in Oklahoma, then traveled across the U.S. for many years, as a stand up comedian. He later settled in Michigan, and began doing local theater. From there he expanded into television and radio commercials (both on camera and as voice talent), audio books, industrial videos, and dozens of Michigan-based movies, both short and feature length. His first major theatrical release was as "Ronny" in "Whip It" directed by Drew Barrymore, where he received hug from Drew, and a punch in the arm, for doing an exceptionally good job... at least thats what she said it was for... Boyd is known for his role as "Wilson" in the pilot episode of "12 Monkeys" on the Syfy Network. He will also be seen in an upcoming episode of "MacGyver" in the role of Alexander Graham Bell.
