Mark first discovered podcasts in 2007 and has been listening ever since. Growing up in Canada and the United Kingdom, Mark’s family moved to Ottawa when he was 9 years old. In the 2000s he studied at Queen’s University and then had a six year career as an English Language Teacher having worked in China, Poland and Morocco in addition to Canada. Somewhere along the line he became concerned with the state of the world, peak oil and environmental issues. In the 2010s he spent time working on a farm, participating in permaculture projects in South America and completing his Permaculture Design Certificate. During this period he created the podcast Reflections On… which ran for two and half years. More recently he studied to be a Library Technician and spends his time volunteering at an environmental non-profit. He is currently based in Ottawa, Canada. Further Reflections is his latest effort.
