About Mark

I am a multimedia journalist and an online media pioneer who tells stories using text, photos, videos, and various online tools.

I was a newspaper reporter and managing editor for more than a dozen years before making the leap online in 1995 to the Interchange Online News Service, an experimental division of AT&T. 

There,  I worked with a team of journalists learning and shaping the tenets of online news before most people heard about the World Wide Web. We also created “Lead Story,” a comprehensive look at the top news story of the day that is sometimes referred to as the first group blog. It was ranked as one of the top eight websites to visit by U.S. News & World Reports.

I later worked as a reporter at the Boston Business Journal before becoming news editor of at the Boston Globe where I  directed a staff of producers to cover some of the biggest news stories in New England and the nation.

In 2014, after earning a masters degree in digital media from Northeastern University, I started Reel Partners Media where I create short-form, documentary-style, videos for businesses and non-profits.  Around the same time I began a part-time affiliation with Emerson College where I teach multimedia journalism.
