    About me

    My name is Mark and I’m a writer, researcher and pop culture expert. I’ve contributed to blogs, radio, TV and podcasts on a wide range of subjects from sci-fi, music and nerd culture. My radio and news appearances include BBC News, BBC Radio Ulster, BBC Radio Scotland, Sky One and RTE Radio 1. In 2015 I appeared on the Sky One reality game show “King of the Nerds”. I’m a writer for Geek Ireland.

    I am currently working in London at The Narrative Digital Studios producing a wide range of online content for BBC, MGM and Red Bull Gaming. Here at The Narrative I was in charge of managing the official YouTube channel for the MGM sci-fi franchise Stargate, a channel with over 75k subscribers. Here I learned, under expert advice from ex-YouTube employees, how to maximise our impact from video uploads by utilising the best type of headline, thumbnail and keywords for searches using plugins such as VidIQ and Google Analytics. Here I achieved getting videos well in advance of 25k hits within a matter of days.

    I’m also a keen musician having founded the Belfast Ukulele Jam and a regular MC at the London Ukulele Wednesday Club at Tamesis Dock. Feel free to look at my portfolio of work, follow me on social media and get in touch.
