Mark was born in Ashington in 1974 and has worked at everything from a Fairground Worker to a Hotel Manager.
After smoking for over 23 years he found his first e-cig on the 5th September 2010 whilst trying to find a cheaper way to smoke and never looked back.
A drive to know how things work, and being a huge cheapskate, quickly brought him to the world of modding, where he found his home on Tin Your Tip.
A self-confessed perfectionist he worked tirelessly, locked away in his man-cave trying to create the perfect mod for the perfect vaping experience!
Sadly Mark passed away from what we only know as Adult Death Syndrome on the 19th June 2014.
Mark, who would have been 40 years of age on the 15th July 2014 joined Vapourtrails as a presenter in 2012, but had been part of the crew before then. His gentle manner and lack of ability to say no, soon caused him to join up with Garry Dibley, and the ModMaster was born.
But Mark did much more than present Tin Your Tip, he managed our forums, was the Technical Genius behind TeamTalk, and as Sav and I called him, The Guru, if there was anything we needed to know, Mark was our man.
But he was much more than that, he was our friend, and his passing will affect us all for a long time to come.
Garry described him as a Big Man with Big Heart, and that he was… we will miss him greatly..
