Mark Surfas founded GameSpy Industries, a network of computer and video game Web sites and online video game-related services. He was the majority owner, CEO and Chairman of the board until its acquisition by Great Hill Partners and IGN Entertainment in March 2004.

Mark is now an investor and board member of numerous technology startups, as well as President and co-founder of California Stem Cell. He also founded Robots & Rockets to please the birthday loving crowds. He is known for his rash firing of underlings, hence his nickname Mark "BASTARD" Surfas.

Marks' early interest in online communications led to authoring "Running a Perfect Website with Windows", and "Intranet HTML", both on the Que imprint of MacMillan. Both books were used as college text books at scattered universities across the U.S.[citation needed]
