About Mark L. Stine
by: T. Alexander

Mark Stine is a world traveler and aficionado of the finer things in life. Having visited five continents and numerous global cities in business and personal pursuits, he has encountered many amusing and interesting anecdotes that he pairs with his travels. Adding to the fun is his ability to weave everyday personal experiences into meeting new people in foreign lands and enjoying the bounty of tastes in food and wine served round the world.

An avid snow skier for decades, he started his daughter off early, when at 4 ½ she noted on a plane trip to Vail, " They really do treat you better in First Class." It was the second serving of soda before the plane had even taken off that got her.

His penchant for the finer things is also coupled with his ability to ferret out deals and simple pleasures that can be enjoyed for less….given a chance he will fill you in on the "killer bottles of Chardonnay" he scored once at the 99 Cent only Stores in Los Angeles.

His marketing, communications and public relations experience has given him the ability to communicate and his brief stint in Los Angeles as a movie/tv actor gave him a unique look at food from a catering standpoint.

Currently working as a communications specialist, he is now able to devote himself to writing. We at Delicious Destinations & GourmetStation welcome Mark to our stable of contributors and look forward to his interesting tales.
