Welcome to Mark Cromer's web page. I started playing guitar at age 8, classical guitar by age 11, and attended the Peabody Institute at age 14. I graduated from Peabody with a Masters and worked as a free lance musician and teacher in and around Baltimore until my mid 30's. After learning about Mac based recording systems on my own, a friend offered me a once in a life time chance to make sound effects for computer games at Microprose Software in Hunt Valley MD. That was 17 years ago, and man what a ride! I've been able to design and record sound fx and music for some very cool games over the years, most recently at Video Gaming Technologies in Reno Nevada.
