Mark describes himself as: “Passionate, Energetic, Creative – Geologist, Father and Scout”. He was involved in Scouting as a youth but really found his passion for Scouting in Canada when his 2 boys, Oliver & David, started in Beavers – and subsequently he dragged his wife in too. Since then he hasn’t looked back and threw himself into Scouts as section scouter, Hawkeye, Akela, Area Commissioner, and recently supporting council and national initiatives. He is most proud of leading the team that developed the New Scouter Welcome Kit (NSWK) which is currently in its 3rd edition with more than 40,000 copies distributed. Professionally he is a Vice President at Cenovus Energy in Calgary that subsidizes his Scouting job!
