Born in Yorkshire, England, I'm a San Diego-based creative mind, a brand storyteller who has been getting to the heart of clients' businesses to develop solid, comprehensive brand and communications strategies since 1996. Put simply, I support businesses in figuring out what to say, how to say it, and where and when to say it. 

Partnering with clients, I employ a holistic approach to deliver award-winning campaigns, using the most appropriate channels to positively connect with target audiences and help inform opinions and perceptions through constructive engagement. This draws upon a variety of skills, including communications review and strategy, media and content development, copywriting, media engagement, and public relations.

My client experience spans Corporate Communications, B2B, and B2C, for clients primarily serving the life sciences and technology sectors. 
My approach is 'can do.' Roll up your sleeves, engage with positivity, and do great work with awesome clients. In such dynamic and always-evolving markets, I'm endlessly curious, always learning, and focused on making each day count.


"I have known and worked with Mark since the late 1990's. He is a rare, special colleague and consultant. Intelligent with strategic, creative and practical flair; hardworking and loyal; excellent client servicing skills and a broad and deep understanding of integrated, authentic storytelling and cross sector expertise.

Above all, he's a true gentleman, fun to be around and someone who gives his best in all he turns his hand, heart and brain to."

His professionalism and follow-thru is top notch and he always goes the extra mile to ensure a successful outcome for his clients. I highly recommend Mark. There's no one better."

“I've worked with Mark now on and off for almost two decades, primarily during my years in technology publishing and media, where he was a vital contact and liaison for me in arranging all kinds of meetings, presentations and content with his client base. A consummate professional with the calmest demeanor in the Universe (vital when trying to calm down Editors on deadline - he's talked me down a few times), Mark is one of the best PR pros I've dealt with. Even when he's out of the country, there's always a timely response to e-mails etc. A born communicator, Mark must truly be a joy to work with for his clients, for if he treats a media contacts like myself with such unwavering professionalism and attention to detail, then I can only imagine the time he spends with his clients. I have no reservations in recommending Mark at the highest level.”

Matt Grimshaw, Freelance Content Producer, Co-Founder:, VP Comms for NeuroMem Inc.

"Many recommendations are based on colleagues that have often only known each other for a matter of months. I have known Mark for more than four decades now and I can certainly vouch for his qualities.

Mark is a walking creative brain. He was thinking outside the box before the term was even invented and never fails to surprise with his inspired insights and ideas. I would recommend working with Mark as you will enjoy a different take on the challenges you work through, and I guarantee that solutions will be found with the typical Yorkshire lack of fuss."
