Mark has been working with WordPress since 2009, building on a career in photography and print design.
When Mark started out with WordPress, he was living in Scotland where he attended a few of the Meetups in Edinburgh. After returning to his native Northern Ireland in 2013, he found there was no existing WordPress Meetup there. So, he set about creating the WPBelfast Meetup group.
His enthusiasm for being part of and developing the WordPress Community led him to become the Lead Organiser for the inaugural WCBelfast 2016, a Co-organiser for WCDublin 2017 and Lead Organiser for WCBelfast 2018. He has also volunteered at other WordCamps including as a photographer for WordCamp Europe.
