== Biography ==
=== High School and College Years ===
Wrestling since age 5, in 1993, he was the Oregon state champion during his senior year wrestling at Pendleton High School in Pendleton, Oregon, where he only wrestled for one year. He transferred from Glencoe High School in Hillsboro, Oregon, which he attended from 1990 to 1992. He then wrestled for the University of Wisconsin-Madison, majoring in Agricultural Business Management, and graduating in 1998.

In 1996, Stark was the only wrestler in the country to score offensive points against National Champion Les Gutches. His highest finish during his collegiate wrestling career came during his senior (fifth) year which he placed third in the 1998 Big Ten Championships held at Penn State University. His highest finish at the United States Open National Championships in freestyle wrestling was eighth place.

== Personal Life ==
Stark is a non-active member of Mensa. He took the test (and scored 134, two points above the cutoff) while still an undergraduate in Madison, Wisconsin.

On 9 September 2000, he married Tiffany Marie Tennefoss, owner of Tiffany Stark Fundraising LLC, a Republican concern, who has worked for Ron Saxton and Mitt Romney. They lived in the hills of northwest Portland, but separated in late 2007. While his divorce is still pending, Stark has now joined several dating websites looking for childless women to date casually, as he has publicly stated that he has no desire to ever remarry or raise children.

Heir to a door and cabinet manufacturing company, he is an aficionado of Cuban cigars, and an oenophile who plans to bottle his own Pinot noir wine in a few years. He is presently the manager of the Colene Clemens Vineyard in Newberg, Oregon, a family business named in honor of his maternal grandmother.
