Born in Chicago, Mark DeCarlo has done a lot in the entertainment industry. He has hosted, created, produced and participated in many television projects. He even was a contest on Sale of the Century, winning more than $100k.
Several years ago, I met and interviewed Mark at a convention which had a lot of potential. The convention ended up being wrought with issues, but that's another story. The good news is I met so many great folks, including Mark. Our interview is at On the Beat With Mark DeCarlo.
Mark hosted a show on the Travel Channel for two seasons and also had a food and travel related podcast with his wife. I talked to Mark about all of this in our interview.
I love meeting folks like Mark. He is an under-the-radar celebrity, but he has done so much. He gave me several minutes of his time at the convention both on and off camera. In a convention filled with stars, meeting Mark ranked right up there as one of the best experiences.
