REQUEST Mark's AVAILABILITY
Mark is a US Army veteran, LGBTQ+ ally, stroke-survivor and addiction recovery advocate and entrepreneur. (www.lawoftransitions.com) You can find Mark presenting in small intimate settings and wired for sound for 1000+ audiences. Everyone evolves through transitions and Mark’s expertise is helping people do just that. He has worked as a strategic deal maker with nearly 30 years of experience as a team builder, leader and advocate in the media, entertainment and marketing industries.
He cut his teeth in the US Army as a field reporter and television anchor of the American Forces Korea Network and then as a civilian late-night talk radio host in markets across the country. Appreciating the power and protections of the constitution, Mark transitioned into a First Amendment and then intellectual property lawyer.
Mark also co-founded Omelet, the country’s first 2.0 ad agency that pursued a 50/50 business model with ½ of the company’s efforts focusing on work-for-hire advertising and marketing and ½ the development and exploitation of intellectual property owned or controlled by the agency often in conjunction with its brand clients. (www.omelet.com)
Mark currently volunteers as the Judge Advocate for the legendary Hollywood Post No. 43, The American Legion, Department of California. (www.post43.org)
After surviving two major strokes in 2015 and 2016, Mark took up long distance running and completed a couple of marathons (including the NYC!) before discovering his love of ultra-running clocking 50k events as often as he can (pending schedule changes mandated by the whims of his most amazing 17-year old twin girls.)
Mark believes women rule / trans people are rising / race colors everything / veterans deserve celebration / all content serves a purpose (even tik tok @law_of_transitions)
