đź‘‹ Hi, I'm Marc

I'm currently CEO of doopoll – an award wining polling platform with clients such as Welsh Government, O2, WRU and Admiral. My past comtains a history of high quality journalism, creative and entrepreneurial projects.

I am the author of several books including Connected: The power of modern community (Guardian Shorts – 2013) which explores how online communities and offline communities connect in order to achieve great civic action. It features case studies and interviews with Barack Obama’s re-election campaign CTO, Erik Martin (one of Time Magazine’s most 100 influential people in 2011) and the CEO of Mumsnet

Previously, I helped to start and delivered the Welsh Music Prize with John Rostron and Radio 1’s Huw Stephens. That prize promoted the best album of any genre to be produced in Wales or by a Welsh person act living away from Wales.

In 2010, I graduated Cardiff University with a BScEcon European Union Studies having also studied at Technische Universität Berlin. Following my undergraduate studies, I studied magazine journalism on one of the most respected postgrad programmes in the UK (Cardiff). I speak English, Welsh, French and German.

I'm a trustee of Institute of Welsh Affairs – Wales’ only independent think tank and Sinfonia Cymru – a young and innovative chamber orchestra based in Wales.
