Lowcountry Geologic was started up on a shoestring in 1992, literally a lifelong dream of Mark's. He had been introduced to fossil hunting as a child by his father when they lived in Spain. Mark found his first Megalodon on the beach in Rota and has kept it to this day. As luck would have it, his father was stationed at Naval Base Charleston in the 70's. Mark soon discovered that fossil shark teeth were all around him. Anywhere a pond or a ditch was being dug, he would look for fossils. Mark received a BS degree in Geology from the College of Charleston and entered the field of "commercial paleontology." Mark has been able to turn the love of fossil hunting from an avocation into a successful business.
