Mark was born in a council house in Amersham, 52 years ago. He attended 4 local schools, including Dr Challoners Grammar School and also undertook a 4 year apprenticeship at local printing company, Halstans.
Mark has a career in Out of Home advertising and runs an international non-profit federation which includes global outdoor advertising companies JCDecaux and Clear Channel. He travels regularly, and often speaks at international advertising conferences.
Mark is married with two teenage children and, having lived in Old Amersham for virtually his whole life, feels a deep connection to the area. His first jobs as a teenager were cleaning cars in a local garage and shelf stacking in local supermarkets as well as helping the Round Table with the Carnival and putting up the Christmas lights in Sycamore Rd!
He feels particularly strongly about local over development and about protecting the local area from over development and the historic buildings in our town.
Mark is a keen guitarist, playing regularly in a covers band and has also taught guitar for many years, both privately and occasionally in local schools.
