Marek is a director at the Interactive Content Company, The Mustard Corporation. Originally trained as a screenwriter whilst studying at the University of Denver, Marek later bolstered his practical understanding of film by working as a grip on a number of slightly questionable Vancouver-based film shoots.
A week after graduating in 2004 with a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Edinburgh, Marek was hired by Atari to work on their new Driver title. There he met fellow writers Maurice Suckling and Neil Richards – the trio formed The Mustard Corporation, which specialises in games writing and design, audio direction, film and TV scripts. An avid gamer since the time Vic 20s were seen as computing powerhouses, Marek’s very relieved all those hours spent in front of TVs and monitors are actually proving useful.
