Mark was one of Nesta's Creative Pioneers. The programme offered support and business funding to creative graduates.
Mark studied Manufacturing and Management (MET) at Cambridge University, graduating in 2000. Following his degree, he attended the Royal College of Art where he studied Product Design.
It was while at the RCA that he developed a range of "Self Heating Crockery" - a range of plates, cups and bowls that could instantaneously heat to sixty degrees at the touch of a button.
Mark won British Inventor of the Year in 2002 for the crockery range and has since appeared on a number of TV programs including BBC's Dragons' Den.
He is currently Inventor in Residence at the London Science Museum.
