In his own words:

"I’ve been involved in music for as long as I can remember, initially as a pianist and trumpeter (and tuba player) before switching to voice whilst at Huddersfield University. It was there that I was introduced to the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, becoming a member of the National Youth Choir and the Chamber Choir before moving ‘upstairs’ to become the Choir Administrator, eventually moving to my current role of General Manager. Alongside my work with NYCGB I have always worked as a freelance musician.

As a conductor, I have been Musical Director for the Huddersfield Choral Society Youth Choir, the Michaelmas Singers and Durham Cathedral Young Singers, and I currently hold the posts of Musical Director for Newcastle Choral Society and the Quay Lasses at Sage Gateshead. As a singer, I have been a singing teacher for Cheshire Music Service and Durham County Music Service and continue to sing as a tenor soloist for choral societies and ensembles in the North East."

For NYCGB:

Mark holds overall responsibility for the management of all aspects of NYCGB's administration, including courses and concerts, finance and personnel.
