Mark was born in Manchester but moved to the north east of England when he was just 4. His earliest memory of this was falling off his go-kart and cracking his head open on moving day....ouch!
He came to Nottingham in the late 80's to study "Humanities" (that's right - he couldn't decide what to do, so chose a mish-mash of subjects) at Nottingham Trent. It was here that a passion for radio was ignited - Mark worked voluntarily for Nottingham Hospitals Radio. His big break came in the early 90's, when some weekend work/holiday cover came up at TFM radio, in the north east and later, at Trent FM in Nottingham. After graduating, Mark's radio career took him back to the north east, then to Yorkshire and back to Nottingham in 1996.
In terms of family life, Mark is married to Jeanette, who works for the NHS and they have a son and a daughter, plus a black labrador called Molly.
Mark's interests include cooking, playing squash and cycling - last year, he rode from London to Paris and this year took part in the Great Nottinghamshire Bike Ride (75 miles).
Mark is a keen Forest fan (he attends most home games and does the stadium announcements on match days) but also supports his son's team...even on cold, wet, windy Sunday mornings! Oh the joy!!
