Artistic Director of Acting
Mark leads an independent theatre company called Odyssey Theatre which devises plays and workshops that connects drama with social issues. After graduating, Mark continued building the work of Ignite whilst working full-time in primary education.
As well as leading Odyssey, Mark is also a High School teacher in Thailand, South East Asia where he works as a an English and Drama Teacher and supports children from some of the poorest areas of Thailand.
In November 2018 Mark noticed a gap in the market for English speaking theatre productions in the Chonburi region of Thailand. Siam Drama Studio was born out of Mark's desire to continue working in theatre despite being over 5,000 miles from the UK. With the lack of permanent theatre facilities in the area, Siam's specialism was in producing plays for only one or two actors. Launching with Sugar Baby by Alan Harris, this award winning one-man comedy was greatly received. In the summer of 2019 Mark performed Duncan Macmillan's Every Brilliant Thing in England, Wales, Thailand, and was also invited to perform for a number of international schools in the area. This production was directed by co-artistic director, Debi, whom he had asked to come on board to help move the company forward. As Siam Drama, Mark has also taught drama to students aged 2-16 and has been invited to hold workshops on character development for school art days.
Mark is very excited to be leading I-PATH's Acting Department.
