Mark Benewith

Technology Specialist, Web Developer and Trainer

Mark spent four years working for BBC Bristol managing a variety of systems and networks, from core systems for on-site productions and news to Virtual Private Networks in remote locations for the NHU’s Springwatch and Autumnwatch.

Mark has much experience and a wide skillset that encases many systems and technologies. He was involved in the design, setup and development of AfroReggaeDigital – a radio training centre based in a slum on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. He constructed a network for editing and training and installed and configured the internet broadcast equipment.

During this project he also trained young students in constructing websites, photography and studio setup and now speaks Spanish and Portuguese.

Mark studied Music Systems Engineering at the University of England, Bristol. He spent 8 years there involved in a variety of projects within the Bristol music and culture scene and still tries to find the time to DJ and write some beats wherever he finds himself.
