Mark Sherman is a true "Renaissance soul," with a variety of interests and accomplishments. He has a PhD in Psychology from Harvard University, taught psychology at SUNY New Paltz for over 25 years, and published a book and many articles on gender issues. He also was a New Paltz town councilman from 1988-1991. But humor and song have always been very important to him. He has written a humor column for the New Paltz Times for over 20 years, and has written and performed his very funny (and sometimes playfully adult) songs in all kinds of venues.
