Born in Sydney in 1956, Mark commenced his career in 1973 as an apprentice carpenter and joiner and when qualified, worked in the residential home improvement industry.  He moved to Perth, Western Australia in 1982 where, for approximately 6 years, he owned his own company in the home improvement industry whilst successfully completing studies to obtain a Builders Registration Certificate.  He then worked for one of Western Australia’s largest home building companies as a building construction supervisor.

After the downturn in the WA construction industry in 1990 Mark obtained a contract with the Commonwealth Government to develop and implement a building upgrade program on Christmas Island. The scope of work for the program was to upgrade all buildings to comply with current Australian Standards and to use on-Island labour where possible.  Therefore, one of his responsibilities was to develop a series of training courses in various trade building areas.

After the program was successfully implemented, Mark returned to Perth in 1991 where he commenced working in local government as a Building Surveyor.  He spent 13 years inspecting building work, assessing plans and issuing approvals for all types of buildings from residential houses through to large commercial buildings.

In 2004 Mark enhanced his career by obtaining a position in the Western Australian state government as a Senior Technical Officer.  He worked in the building codes and standards area and was involved in the development and implementation of National building regulations working with the Australian Building Codes Board as the WA State representative on its Building Codes Committee.  During his time with the State Government mark was involved with the drafting of the national building codes and WA building legislation.  He also provided advice and training to the WA building industry on a daily basis.

Mark has also been a part time lecturer in building studies at the Central Institute of Technology in Perth for a period of 5 years.  During this time he has written several learning resources and text books for student studies.

He has also written and published a book entitled “Today’s Owner Builder” to assist owners to construct their own homes. for more information about the book or to purchase a copy of the book please click the link below.
