For 22 years he operated radio stations, writing and presenting local news on-air, and scouting talent as an FM Program Director. He has won awards in Sales for his B2B work in Internet services, and continues to teach others the virtues of “anti-selling,” explaining he understood it all when he stopped trying to sell.
Mark lives on the river with his daughter Sara and a variety of domesticated creatures, among them a Jack Russel named Ollie, aka “El Capitan,” who enjoys kayaking and world domination, and a Pit Bull named Ziggy, who has dedicated his life to catching Frisbees and teaching humans unconditional love.
Mark holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from BC. He learned to write through trial and trial again courtesy of monks at the Abbey, and during his career as a journalist.
Mark’s newswriting career spanned 22 years with several New England radio stations. He has published reviews for SoundWaves magazine for Dave Van Ronk and Keb ‘Mo, and produced a DVD “PA Systems for Small Groups” (ASIN: B003H1AI74), intended to help avoid all-too-common problems with the audio at podium events.
His radio career was followed by a decade of field recording for regional self-help conventions, during which he compiled an impressive archive of fine-quality audio. Almost fifteen years later now, he’s transcribing the audio to present it as paperback books, in a series, each package to represent an entire event, and then made into Audible audiobooks. This exciting new package of AA and Alanon recordings and related books/audiobooks will all be available over the coming months.
Mark’s first book, “Save Me From The Flood: A Personal Chronicle of Flooding in Rhode Island and Connecticut in March and April 2010” is also available on Amazon (ASIN: B0054EXD2Y).
