You might be surprised to learn that Roman Mars does not hold a degree in architecture or design. He actually studied plant population genetics. It’s a long story. Nevertheless, Fast Company named Mars one of the 100 Most Creative People in 2013 and he was a TED main stage speaker in 2015. He produced the most successful crowdfunding campaigns for a podcast in Kickstarter history, and he continues to captivate listeners everywhere as the creator and host of 99pi.
