Mark Estdale

I had the enormous privilege of growing up alongside mentors who were inventors and innovators who questioned everything. I inherited their fearless bug and OM is the result. The vision for OM was to establish ways to help actors perform at the peak of their ability in games. Little did I know it would take me into the world of spies, into psychology, software design, teaching, dramaturgy and redesigning recording studios ground up. I love the journey and the team. In my down time I write, walk, cook, brew, scuba dive, modify motorcycles, experiment with improv and ideas for eco living, and I hug my family whenever I can.
