Mark launched his creative production company Phanta Media in 2006, grew it to a little over $2mm in revenue, and then slowly watched as it all crumbled around him.  Through the hard lessons learned and working to not make the same mistakes twice, today Phanta focuses less on “keeping the machine fed” and more on doing extraordinary work with really cool people.

 

As a brand strategist, Mark understands that YOU need to be courageous.  There's only one YOU and it takes courage to go all-in on you.  The courage to trust your gut while also pushing your comfort zone.  The courage to say what others can't, or simply won't say.  The courage to see 10x ahead of where you are now, believing that you can make it happen.  Courage is what we admire most from extraordinary people and brands.  Courage is what you need.
