Somewhere on Earth in a not so distant past. I created the Mark Drifter persona for a virtual publication called United By Chaos in 2003, long before many people copied the name in social media sites. In real life, I am a nomadic immigrant living in Finland. I trace my roots back to the Philippine Archipelago. where I started taking photos with a 'found' smart phone to capture the moments of my travel escapades. I have since moved on to documenting underground music scenes, taking pictures of cats & abandoned buildings, BDSM activities & music festivals. Im also a manager of a small & independent record label and an experimental sound artist in my spare time.
