Mark is 26 years old and grew up in Harvard, MA, on a small family owned apple orchard. He made his first cider his senior year at Connecticut College. He graduated in 2014 with a double major in International Relations and History. During his junior year, he completed an internship in New York City in Investment Management. After graduation Mark worked at a tech startup in Boston, putting in long hours with what felt like a very unrewarding career ahead. In 2015 the idea for a cider company started and evolved into what is now Prospect Ciderworks.
