As a producer he has supported artists and organisations including Ian Carrington (Fat Roland), Proud and Loud Arts, Contact Young Company (CYC) and Wonderhouse Productions.
Mark works across different mediums from theatre, performance & writing to visual art, film & illustration.
Mark graduated Manchester Metropolitan University in 2007 with a degree in Creative Writing and Drama. Since then he’s had the pleasure of working with some wonderful organisations which include;
"I am interested in human psychology, human history and the humour of being human.
My works explored the feelings, thoughts, and stories that can work to either segregate or, hopefully, connect us.
I enjoy the clashing together of art forms to make unique experiences which aim to surprise, delight and perhaps unnerve audiences."
