Mark got his start in 1998 working as a diesel technician.
Seeking to broaden his technical skills he attended Universal Technical Institute. He then enrolled in the BMW STEP program.
After graduation he worked for Sterling BMW in Newport Beach, California and earned his title as Master Technician.
In June of 2006 Mark also started working for Steve Millen Motorsports where he was a technician as well as a fabricator. They completely disassembled and race-prepped a 2005 Ford GT and 2009 Nissan GTR. He traveled with the Stillen crew as a rally technician for the 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2011 Targa New Zealand Race and the 2009 Targa New Foundland race.
After 7 years with BMW, Mark wished to expand his knowledge of exotic cars and went to work for Ferrari & Maserati of Orange County. With great pride and confidence in his work, and the realization that working on cars is not just a hobby or job, but his life's passion, Mark decided to open Mark Douglas Motorworks in Mission Viejo, California.
