He backpacked through Eastern Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Scandinavia ( a period that was the basis of his first screenplay and directorial début ) finally ending up in Washington D.C. working in the Australian Embassy.
There he was smitten by the film bug and returned to South Africa where television production was in its heyday. Mark is now a recognised film director and lives in the United Kingdom.
He is married, and has one daughter.Two Feet is his first attempt at writing a novel, an experience he describes as being “therapeutic”!
