I would definitely recommend working with Mark in planning a pre-departure training session for fellows/volunteers/staff going overseas early in their careers. His first-hand knowledge and experience in the field allowed him to speak candidly about the challenges and ethical dilemmas he himself has faced at times and to give concrete examples of what our international fellows might expect to encounter during their field placements. His use of a camera in the classroom in particular was pivotal in putting our participants in the shoes of locals they may be interacting with during their time overseas. He was a very organized, reliable and easy-going person to work with.
