What I do
Mark worked in Nesta’s Innovation Lab on programmes that involved young people.
This included the young people strand of the Centre for Social Action and our work on digital education. His work at Nesta focused on getting more students coding, better use of digital technologies within mainstream school life and greater involvement of volunteers and student peers in learning – both in or out of school.
Mark has expertise in the methods, techniques and processes of innovation. He has worked on programmes around diffusing innovative ideas, including supporting the People's Supermarket to codify and publish their methods in a book.
Before joining Nesta, Mark worked in the private sector with a focus on technology driven innovation and the delivery of that innovation at scale.
He is a graduate of University College, London, where he received a First class degree in Philosophy. He is a volunteer literacy and numeracy tutor at his local youth centre, and supports a number of charities working in early years settings.
