Mark started freelancing life as a copywriter. Initially focussing on video games and technology he branched out to cover social media, marketing, and website copy. Other areas of expertise that Mark has written about include Twin Peaks, The X-Files, and Photography.

This is a long list of links to some of the copy Mark has written over the years. A lot of it is here, some of it has disappeared into the black hole of 404 errors, and a few things were ghostwritten and shall remain a secret.
