Having grown up in the hospitality industry, working in the kitchens of his parent’s pubs and restaurants, becoming a chef was the only career path Mark ever considered. After leaving catering college in Glasgow, Mark honed his culinary skills in top restaurants such as Glasgow’s One Devonshire Gardens and Heston Blumenthal’s 3 Michelin starred Fat Duck. Mark went on to appear in the very first series of BBC’s Masterchef the Professionals, headed up an award winning country restaurant and taught in a high profile cookery school, before returning home in 2009 to join the family business.

In late 2013 following the sale of his family business Mark made the decision to move away from cooking in restaurants and turn his attention to becoming a private chef, a decision which has seen Mark become one of the most respected and sought after private chefs in the country. Mark travels the globe cooking for a very exclusive client base which includes some of the biggest Hollywood stars and the world’s most respected business leaders.
