Mark has been a teacher and researcher for many years. Teaching critical thinking, ethics, moral and political theory, human rights, and many other subjects, his research has focussed on issues in phenomenology and cognitive science. He holds a PhD and a Masters in International & Community Development.

Mark’s passion for international and community development stems from his teaching work, together with his work with refugees in Melbourne, and field work in South East Asia.

Born in the 70s and growing up in the 80s, Mark clearly recalls the various social developments of the 80s, which have instilled in him a commitment to compassion, community, and education.


Favourite pastimes: laughing with friends, and welcoming strangers as new friends.

Worst habit: constantly leaving every light in the house on.

What are you currently reading? The Shan: Culture, Art and Crafts (by Susan Conway). It’s really nicely written, with beautiful photos and images. Nothing that I don’t like about it really – it’s a great book and very enjoyable to read.

This month’s earworm: John Farnham’s ‘Reasons‘. Cannot get enough of it!

Favourite word of the month: ‘Felicity’ meaning happiness. For example, ‘he recounted the day with his usual felicity’. 

Personal DevelopEd highlight for the month: The wonderful books that people happily and regularly donate to our ‘Books for Burma’ initiative. Hooray!
