Mark Hulmes is a content producer of the Yogscast network. He joined The Yogscast in September 2015 as the new Community Manager and left the position in July 2017 to work as a content creator for the High Rollers D&D and Tabletop Weekly series he founded while working as the Community Manager.
Mark has been a Community Manager for previous companies for 8 years, covering the MMORPGs RuneScape, WildStar and Blade & Soul. In London, he spent a year working as an actor and voice artist (a sample of Mark's voice acting talents can be heard on his SoundCloud). He also met the people behind PlayStation Access.
In 2015, given his interest in tabletop role-playing game (RPG), Mark hosted Hat Films' Star Wars Roleplaying Game livestream, Episode IX: A New Hat, during the Yogscast Jingle Jam 2015 on December 10. Its sequel, Episode II: Return of the Chevin, aired about a year later and also hosted by Mark.
In 2016, following the positive responses from the Hat Films' livestream, Mark goes to create and host the series, High Rollers D&D. It first aired on January 17, 2016 and has completed its first main campaign, Lightfall, with the second campaign Aerois starting on July 1, 2018. In September, Mark co-hosts the Madden NFL 17 series with Kim Richards. On November 26, Mark started Tabletop Weekly, a YouTube channel dedicated to tabletop RPG. Mark has also hosted several tabletop RPG livestreams during Yogscast Jingle Jam 2016.
In 2017, Mark continues to host various Hat Films' tabletop RPG livestreams. On July 5, Mark transitions into Content Producer, effectively dropping his role as Community Manager. This allows him to focus full-time on High Rollers D&D and Tabletop Weekly, as well as new projects such as creating homebrew contents for the Dungeon Masters Guild and writing a novel.
Being a fan of Dungeons & Dragons, Mark regularly participates in D&D campaigns in his own time with his friends and colleagues. He is known to be friends of Chris Perkins and Matthew Mercer, both of whom are dungeon masters of their own D&D series.
