Mark received his B.Sc. (Hons) in Organic Chemistry from Victoria University of Wellington. Raised in a Christian home but with a science teacher mother who believed in evolution and long ages, Mark abandoned his faith as the ‘easy’ option when the conflict between these beliefs was made abundantly clear at university.
Today Mark owns and operates an import and distribution business on Auckland’s North Shore and is a part time speaker for Creation Ministries International. He has been married to Sherryl for more than 20 years and, in addition to his three (now young adult) children, has one grandchild.
