Mark graduated from Stanford University with a degree in economics. After school, he took nine months off to travel around the world, including an idyllic stint in a beach cottage in Bali for a few dollars a night.
When not occupied with his EBI duties, Shaw enjoys growing biomass, converting it to fuel, ingesting it, and burning it off by riding his bike, walking his dogs and playing basketball.
