Mark has been shooting since the age of 11, when he moved from Middlesex to the middle of the Fens on the Cambridgeshire/Norfolk borders. Already a keen fisherman he spent most of his formative years with either gun or rod in hand.
On leaving college he joined the Royal Marines after which he followed a career in international freight forwarding. In 2014 he decided to step out of the corporate world into the working life as a freelance shooting instructor. A keen game shot and wildfowler, he took his Association of Professional Shooting Instructors (APSI) course in 2015, followed by his CPSA qualifications.
Mark joined the Bisley Instructor team in the latter part of 2018 and is particularly keen on introducing newcomers into the sport, both young and old. When not working in the field or on the clay ground, he can be found on his narrow boat, out riding his motorbike or training/working his dog.
