Photos with Mark Falvo
Mark Falvo was born in Boston to Carl and Thelma Falvo. After bouncing around western and central Pennsylvania, the family settled in central Pa. where Carl Falvo became general manager of a radio station. Mark started working at the radio station when he was 13 doing everything from emptying the garbage cans to on-air broadcasting, including news and sporting events. Mark was very athletic in school, however, after a sports injury sidelined his sports career he became very interested in the arts. He developed his artistic side painting in acrylics, watercolors, pen and ink, oils, winning several local juried art shows.

Mark graduated from Penn State and worked in radio - selling advertising, doing voice-overs and writing copy. He also began his modeling career in print and local television commercials. Shortly thereafter, he was accepted into law school and three years later graduated from Ohio Northern Law School. While attending law school, Mark was hired by the theater department to develop campaigns, and promote and advertise theatrical productions. He was also the house manager and became a mainstay in the theater department. After graduating from law school, Mark returned to central Pennsylvania to practice law. While practicing law, he continued to write copy and announce sporting events on the radio for his father at night. Mark was also very involved in the community, coaching several sports and volunteering for several organizations. He was chairman of the Young Lawyers Division of the local bar association. During this time, Mark used his expertise in broadcasting, media and his coaching skills and applied everything to the organizations he was involved in, but mostly toward his bar association duties. In 2001-2002, all of Mark's efforts came together when he created a program called "Legal Eagles." The program, which brought professionals from various fields into the school districts to speak with the students, became recognized locally, by the state and nationally earning him accolades from various governors of Pennsylvania and two former U.S. presidents (Clinton and Bush). The American Bar ASssociation ranked the program in the top 10 of public service programs in the 50 states in all U.S. Territories. The program continues today but on a limited basis due to Mark investing more time into his creative ventures - photography for the local newspaper, acting (locally and throughout the mid-Atlantic states), working as an extra in educational films, feature films and made-for-TV movies. He has a brother, David, a math instructor at Penn State University, a sister-in-law, Susan, and a niece, Sofia Maria.
