How He Started His Career

A traveler from his early years, Mark, ventured off into the world once he finished his studies. For a while, he settled in South Africa, visiting other countries of the continent too, and started the blog called Migrationology, using it to record his experiences, and then started sharing amazing food recipes he encountered on his path.

When his blog reached a wider public, Mark launched his YouTube channel, which brought further attention to himself. Video after video on his channel was becoming more popular.

Becoming a YouTube Star

Mark set his mind on traveling further, and for a while was stationed in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during which time he taught English.

After this, he moved to Bangkok, Thailand, where he also landed an English language teaching job, and also kept his blog and YouTube channel alive – the number of his followers increased, and Mark was slowly turning into a star. He has since visited Mexico, Israel, Pakistan, Tibet, Japan, China, among numerous other countries across the world. For the time being, he is stationed in Bangkok.

He now has more than five million subscribers on YouTube, and his videos have been viewed more than 965 million times.
