About Marc

Marc HindleyMarc has worked as a production journalist all over the north of Scotland, from Argyll to Wick and Skye to Banff since the late eighties.

He was chief sub-editor at the Highland News and a web editor of 12 titles in the Scottish Provincial Press group. While there, he developed in-house training courses for sub-editors in Quark Xpress and Adobe InDesign.

He has also freelanced as a writer and photographer for such titles as Land Rover Monthly, Motor Boats Monthly and Personal Computer World.

Marc’s interest in technology created opportunities for him to diversify into digital and he left printed newspapers behind to start a web marketing consultancy, Canary Dwarf, in 2008.

But he didn’t leave journalism behind, and created one of Scotland’s first news aggregation services on the web, Moray Firth Live, for which he won a national social media award in 2009.

Marc brings his experience in digital marketing to Chit Chat PR, where publicity and marketing go hand-in-hand to create the perfect mix for modern-day businesses looking for better visibility.

Marc lives in Forres with his wife and three children, and is currently trying to tame a psychotic panther, or at least that’s how he describes the latest addition to his family, a black labrador.
