From a very young age, Mark’s dream was to become a chef until that is, he was discovered by the great Sir Geraint Evans and so the stage beckoned.
Classically trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and at the National Opera Studio in London Mark has sung on most of the prestigious opera stages in the world. He is well recognised for his rich warm Italianate voice, his charm and his charisma. His immense stage presence is clearly evident when performing any one of a variety of title roles such as Don Giovanni and Eugene Onegin as well as the loveable Papageno in The Magic Flute and the rugged Marcello in La Boheme.
Now known as ‘the baritone’ he appears regularly across the UK, Europe, the Far East and the USA starring in his one-man show as well as operas and galas. Mark continues to impress beyond the opera houses and recording studios after his appearance on our big screens in Guy Ritchie’s “A Game of Shadows” (Warner Brothers) singing and performing the role of Don Giovanni.

‘Let the Light in’ Mark’s debut album reached the top 10 in the UK classical charts. ‘Tell my Father’ performed with the Band of the Welsh Guards became a number one in the UK, benefitting the Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal. Later Nick Patrick, Grammy Award Winning producer created Marks next album ‘This Guy’s In Love’ featuring a wonderfully intimate selection of songs accompanied by a 30 piece orchestra highlighting the “velvety tones of this magnificent baritone.”
