Mark is a visionary and has a keen insight into using television and film as a means of
getting the messages across from a corporate and commercial level where a client wishes
to educate and stimulate using positive wellbeing/health messages or just making simple,
successful TV commercials.
The gift in Mark to create and write material that stimulates thought and makes people
laugh and smile is his genius. To then incorporate this into video/film or any other media
is his magic. Mark has written, directed and at times starred in numerous corporate and
commercial videos that have seen state and national broadcast.
Mark conceived and created the successful Mary G TV Show, two series with 6 episodes

rescreened on SBS as Australia's first Aboriginal variety show. Mark is an accomplished
film maker and he is just scratching the surface in creating new and greater products.
