Meet Mark

My role is Training Officer on the Swansea State of Mind Project. My role involves delivering the State of Mind program to young people in Swansea and Neath Port Talbot. I also help with 121 work, and support the young people's coaches where needed. What I love about my job is the young people I work with, and how they inspire me every day. I have seen some amazing changes in young people because of the work we all do and that gives me the strength to keep doing what I do. I also love the people I work with as we all have a similar vision and approach to what we do. We are all kind and compassionate people and we love the work we do, so for me this isn’t work, it's doing something I love which can never be really called work right? I am a family man first and foremost and my kiddies are my world. Most of my spare time revolves around acting silly with my kids, usually falling over a lot as they tend to be accident prone and making them laugh as a result. I do love cooking and being creative. Favourite quote is Man in the Arena. Its lengthy but it's worth looking up. Basically, it's about giving things a try and if you fail then at least you failed giving it your best shot and you can always be content with that. Remember… Nothing lasts forever and the storm always passes.
