MarkQualifying in 2018, Mark joined Connect as the 2019 intern and has been a regular interpreter ever since.

Before his interpreting career, Mark had graduated from the University of Auckland with degrees in Computer Science and Law. He worked for the next few years as a web developer, expanding his horizons along the way by spending four years in East Asia.

It was a desire to stretch his mind in a new direction that took Mark away from software development and into sign language study. Enrolling in NZSL class, he found a deep enjoyment in the language and pursued this through the interpreter qualification program at AUT.

Mark now interprets in medical and workplace settings, as well as compulsory and tertiary education.
