Mark never likes to do things the same way twice. An explorer of ideas, people and experiences, he is happiest when he’s helping others see the world differently or checking out a new vantage point on his own. Purposeful wandering has led Mark to run up mountains, down random streets and on long car rides with just the right music. He’s always striving to make a meaningful impact on the world while not taking himself too seriously. After a first career in corporate finance, Mark has spent the last decade focused on guiding clients through experience design, brand activation and culture cultivation as well as having a leadership position with Sharp HealthCare and growing the luxury retailer PIRCH.
