Prior to joining Nyhus, Mark served in various campaign leadership positions and as a legislative aide to a senior member of the Washington State Senate. Mark’s background in local and state politics informs his work at Nyhus, where he engages with clients in external and governmental affairs, policy analysis, media relations and content creation.

Despite the unfortunate inability to sing on-key, Mark always has a song in his heart. Ask him what he’s listening to, and you’ll likely hear Wilco, Bon Iver or Mitski—sometimes all at once.
