Originally from Scotland, Mark Walker now spends most of his time in Malaysia and East Africa. As a travel consultant by profession, he has a voracious curiosity about all aspects of life in all the places he has visited. This deep engagement is reflected in his output as a teller of stories, a poet, writer and photographer. He tells stories through all of the media he uses, sometimes hitting hard and to the point, to give voice to those issues that he is passionate about.
His experiences as a co-founder of the Say It Like You Like You Mean It variety show in Penang, Malaysia, has enabled him to nurture new and raw artistic talent as they spread their wings and perform original work for the first time in front of an audience. He has also developed workshops for artists to hone their skill and excel in what drives them.
His street photography is raw and tells a story.
His poetry makes you think and may punch you in the gut.
His story telling is full of characters — sometimes serious, though often with more than a pinch of humour thrown in.
He lives life to the full in all he does.
