Born in London, Mark Forrester moved with his family to Cape Town at the age of 9 and is still living it up in the Mother City.
Mark is the co-founder of WooThemes.com. WooThemes was established in 2008 and is a global business building WordPress products for a community of over 500,000 users.
Prior to WooThemes, Mark was a freelance web designer doing brand and web design work for international clients. He soon realised it was more fun, less hassle, and through hard work, more profitable working on growing his own business ventures.
Mark’s previous ventures included being co-founder of an I.T business solutions company called Gravit8. He was also the designer behind South African social media aggregator Afrigator – which was later sold to MIH Print Africa
