Mark is originally from the UK and was educated in the US. From early on he had TV in his face and music in his ears.
His passion for media came in his teenage years with 'Rock After Midnight', when it was possible to receive far away 50,000 watt radio stations. This captured his imagination.
His first media job in 1982 was for a computerized radio station in Death Valley, California and not because he was a brilliant DJ, but because he was an electrician and diesel mechanic - qualifications much more useful to have around a big radio station. Gradually Mark’s skills as an all-round media guru have been honed.
His highest posting is as media consultant for the Chinese Government working in Beijing. While at China Radio International he guided media content and standards of journalistic conduct to counteract the negative perception of unsubstantiated and blatant communist propaganda.
