After graduating from Liverpool John Moores University in 2003, Mark discovered his passion for writing and returned to education to study for an NCTJ diploma in journalism. A successful media career, spanning 10 years and numerous industries, would follow.
Mark has held staff positions and freelanced for some of the biggest names in the UK media business, including Hearst Magazines and Future Publishing, writing for publications such as Esquire, leading football magazine Four Four Two and the Red Bull website.
He considers himself a versatile writer and editor, having specialised in a diverse range of subjects over the years, from technology to sport and entertainment.
Mark’s first foray into the property industry came in 2016 when he took a staff job with Liverpool-based magazine firm Move Publishing to work across its property titles. He soon made a name for himself as a local property journalist, writing regular news and features aimed at the residential and commercial sectors, and attending countless industry events.
Reporting on house prices and the business sector help Mark developed a firm understanding of the property industry, putting him in good stead for the challenges to come.
Working as a business and property journalist sparked Mark’s interest in mortgages and led him to pursue new challenges in this field. In the summer of 2018, he joined Online Mortgage Advisor in the role of Financial Writer to help grow and develop the firm’s content output. Articles on bridging finance and commercial mortgages became his forte.
Mark has since worked his way up to the position of Chief Editor of Content and now oversees the department’s article output. He has a passion for serving up 5-star content and works closely with a team of freelance writers, expert brokers and in-house staff to make sure every visitor to Online Mortgage Advisor’s website finds the right advice.
