Mark Horn started telling stories when he was in grade school—and promptly got in trouble with the parents in his neighborhood for scaring the other kids with ghost stories. He’s been in trouble ever since. Over the years, Mark has told stories at Tellabration New York; Celebrate Story in Central Park; the Aleph Kallah; Rowe Men’s Conference; and at schools, churches and synagogues, hospitals and house parties, corporate conferences, and all kinds of meetings around the country. He first started teaching traditional Jewish storytelling at Ivry Prozdor during 1996–1997, and fell in love with the school and its community. Mark has worked as a creative director in the advertising world for more than thirty years; he also teaches advertising copywriting at City College of New York and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
