Hi there, my name is Mark. Since leaving school in the 90’s, I have found work in a job I did not like; but it paid the bills. Found love with a struggling art teacher that loves her underpaid job. Left work to be a house husband (a name I was proud to be called) had 3 wonderful kids and fell into a part time job I loved.

Through that, when the time was right and the opertunity was there I took a full time job. Not a well paid job, but I loved it; I provided safety for concerts and sporting events. Because of this I went back to university not one but twice and got my degree in safety at events.

During this study I started a website on the subject, a hobby. This has grown into a second; unpaid job, but is so worth it. I share research, guidance and assistance with anyone that is interested in the subject of crowd safety.

The opertunity to return to University has presented itself, where I can embrace the knowledge and study to the the MSc level. Allowing me to pass on the teaching to others and improve the safety of crowded places. But life, family and a tight budget make this exceptionally difficult. I try not to ask for help and if it means risking hardship and debt on those around me, then it is not worth it.

But, if it was possible that swallowing some pride could help those around me, then I will do so.

Thank you for taking the time to read this
