Prior to joining Alex Bogusky, Rob Schuham and John Bielenberg at COMMON, Mark was a principal at UFUSE Visionary Strategy Management, a global consulting firm devoted to unleashing creativity and helping entrepreneurs produce outstanding results through innovative business strategies, organizational design and alignment of partnerships.
From 2002 to 2005, Mark served as part of the founding management team and Vice President Client Services for Globefish Media BV, where he oversaw the implementation of mobile and digital content management, distribution and billing, and reporting technologies for clients in the entertainment sector in the U.S. and North America. Additional duties included high level business development with major record labels, recording artists, film studios and media companies.
Prior to Globefish, Mark spent fifteen years as a producer, composer and performer who oversaw and contributed to projects for Fox Studios, MGM, Disney Animation, PBS, Mitsubishi, Coca Cola, Pepsi, Activision, Life/FX, Kids Save, Boston Market Restaurants, Power Athletic Footwear and various record labels. He has also worked with numerous recording artists such as Whitney Houston, Bonnie Raitt and Ben Harper.
Mark technically studied music at UCLA and Berkley College of Music, and also holds a B.S. in Business Administration from Cal Polytechnic State University. When he’s not helping other creative professionals and social entrepreneurs spark social change, Mark can be found with his wife and girls, thinking about how cool it would to own a tractor. (Don’t tell anyone – Mark secretly idolizes farmers.).
