Mark lives on Lochgelly with his wife Geraldine and his twin girls Lily and Daisy.
Born in St Andrews in Fife in 1970, Mark attended St Agatha’s primary before going on to St Andrews high.
Mark started his working life as an apprentice electronic technician working with Rodime the hard disk drive manufacturer. While working at Rodime Mark completed an HNC in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
The reccestion of the early 1990′s led Rodime into receivership. As a newly qualified apprentice work was hard to come by and Mark decided to enrol in an degree course at Edinburgh university to study Electronic Engineering.
After a couple years Mark went on to work in the electronic industry before joining a Kirkcaldy based IT company as a workshop technician.
