Living in London

Imperial College master-student

<<Standing at the intersection between humanitites and science"

  Mark is simple and direct. Just like his answers. Knowing him personally, I could also say critical and “outright”. He lives in Camden Town, London, as a master-student. He has some impressive ideas that lie among technology, finance and culture. He lets his ambitions fly high, whereas he holds his feet  firmly on the ground.
