mark Shorey 1

Mark was born in England and brought up in Roswell New Mexico, USA. It was very isolated with not much to do. His passion for media came in his teenage years with 'Rock After Midnight', when it was possible to receive far away radio stations. This idea of global communications captured his imagination.   

After the Vietnam war ended Mark dropped out of university to front an early punk band and spent the next 10 years performing on the road across the US settling near Los Angeles.  His first broadcast job in 1982 was for KRXV / KXVR, a computerized radio station in Death Valley, California between Los Angeles and Las Vegas because he was a sound man and electrician luckily with a strong radio voice  - very useful around a radio station.  He quickly took to the digital revolution and stays to this day at the cutting edge of digital media production. 

So beginning with digital media in its’ infancy Mark’s skills as an online broadcast media expert have been honed.  His best job posting is as media consultant to the Chinese Government working in Beijing.  While at China Radio International (CRI) during its' launch to online delivery he guided journalistic conduct, media content and set quality standards for video production. He has since become a harsh critic of the Chinese government.
