Our Kiwi Home

Despite the fact that Mark has lived the majority of his life outside of New Zealand Mark’s heart has always been firmly back in his home country.

Since September of 2023 Mark has been writing a social history column called Our Kiwi Home for the Christchurch Press. Mark writes about places that are dear to him and interviews people from all walks of life who have enchanting and inspiring stories to tell about growing up in New Zealand.
