Mark Addison has had an insatiable curiosity about design and entertaining since he was very young. His purposeful design and passion for entertaining has made him a sought after expert on home design, event design, signature cocktails & cooking. This is an outlet for Mark to share his tricks of the trade and passion for parties.
At age 7 Mark mastered donut making and at 13 he began hosting dinner parties for his siblings and neighborhood friends, developing his signature meals that are still requested at family gatherings. A native of Miami, Florida, he enrolled in culinary classes while still in high school. He then added a hefty dose of theatrics and presentation while studying design and theater at Florida State University, all while working as a catering chef.
Mark has been graced with a big personality and a wildly creative imagination, which suited him as an actor during his early years in New York. As an actor, he appeared in soap operas, primetime television shows and theater. Mark eventually merged all of his talents and started his own event design firm, EVENTSTYLE that became the “go-to” company for celebrity events, product launches, press events and extraordinary not-for-profit galas.
Mark splits his time between New York City and Palm Beach. During the summer, he can often be found on the farm in Vermont.
