Mark R.'s Profile

About Me

Mark is a lifelong gamer and technology enthusiast who's been a part of the industry since the early 2000s. A graduate of Ohio State University and a published humor book author, he became the first person to hold the title of manager of rating summaries at the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB). He helped create and mold that organization's process to better educate consumers about the pertinent content in every retail video game and now uses that experience as a reviewer for Common Sense Media. As someone who grew up in a household where parental content ratings were strongly adhered to, Mark appreciates the value in providing as much information to parents as possible when it comes to choosing the content that's right for their families. In his house, it's not uncommon to see old episodes of NUMB3RS, Cheers, or Family Guy playing through his PS3's Netflix app. He joined Common Sense Media in 2010.
