Mark has over a decade of international speaking, facilitation and coaching experience focused on human development, emotional intelligence, sacred education, and design thinking. He’s the premier voice in the role culture has in reshaping genetic memory. His portfolio of clientele has spanned 14 countries and includes The Institute of Diversity in the Arts at Stanford University, commissioning a class that engages the relationship between global culture and personal power and multiple TEDx talks on the ability of words to heal intergenerational trauma. His design and development work includes the World Islamic Economic Forum held in the U.K. and a training series on Maximizing Idea Capital for young social entrepreneurs.
In 2014, Mark co-founded the Institute for Narrative Growth, an online learning platform for advancing story-based approaches to human identity, global health and wellness. The Institute provides personal and professional courses to cultivate storytelling documentation for young families and elders to preserve family journeys. The Institute offers training to creative and health practitioners in non-medically invasive techniques for mental health. Each of these strands of work is done by focusing on the primary engine of human behavior and development: story.
While Mark’s work takes him around the world, he remains connected to and is extremely proud of the small village in central Mexico his father’s grandparents came from, his childhood town in Alaska, and the village in Tunisia his wife is from. As with so many of us, these are the places that make him smile for they are the ones that he calls home.
