The Work: Making Whales Soar

Anyone can create waves, but it takes ambition, passion, and vision to make big ideas break through the surface and fly.


The Work: Making Whales Soar

Anyone can create waves, but it takes ambition, passion, and vision to make big ideas break through the surface and fly.




I solve complex, adaptive problems through research, technology, and human-focused design. I turn information and creativity into insight, insight into strategy, and strategy into action.

I create revolutionizing solutions and experiences that connect with people. I balance a hybrid methodology of art and science, defiance, and compliance.

I work with global, Fortune 500 clients, projects, businesses, campaigns, and brands, including everyone from the C-Suite to the Dev-Suite. 

I move the needle from up-and-coming to up-and-running. I'm dedicated to creativity, driven by possibility, and focused on delivering the extraordinary.

Business & Experience Revolution


Art & Science,
Right Brain & Left Brain

Art & Science.png

Right Brain vs Left Brain. Strategy vs Creative.
Emotion vs Logic. Data-Driven vs Intuition.

The war is over, if you want it to be.

Creating harmony across divides can break new ground and forge unique experiences. By destroying the battle between, we can combine both art and science to focus on a new balance for the modern age.


platform agnostic

Mark Michael - Omni Channel & Platform Agnostic

Omni-channel doesn't mean being everywhere to everyone; it means picking and choosing where, when, how, and why to deliver your experience for your specific audience.

People get to choose their journey across devices and they're becoming more non-linear, dynamic, and channel-agnostic. Knowing where to play, and how to win is what earns hearts and minds.


Digital Acceleration,
Innovation, & Transformation

Digital Acceleration, Innovation, and Transformation.png

Digital transformation is not just about embracing technology; it requires a fundamental change in thought, practice, process, and culture. 

Through enhanced experimentation, a core focus on agility, and a deep understanding of value delivery, the never-ending aim is to reinvent and revolutionize the playing field.



Personalized and Customer-Centric.png

Customer-centricity means focusing on and listening to your audience at all times, understanding their mindset, guiding them through their journey from start to finish, and creating a personalized, compelling experience for them.

By fostering connections with people, we can build long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships.

Human to Human Connection, 1 to 1 Marketing

Nothing will replace a human connection. It's something that we need more of in a world that's becoming more fast paced and less human every day.

Fostering a Human-to-Human experience is what creates a true connection with people, and connections built on human experiences transcend into long-lasting relationships.

Arielle Helfman

"Mark is an out-of-the-box strategic thinker, a dedicated team member, and an extremely knowledgeable digital marketing consultant. He wears many hats from pitching new business to executing complex digital analytic and go to market strategies for a wide variety of clients. Many Digital Marketing Consultants are able to give great ideas, but its very rare that the ideas produce strong results. Mark is able to drive results, which has lead to new clients and a strong direction in our existing business, based on his ideas and changes. I thoroughly enjoy working with Mark not only because he is smart, sharp and a breath of fresh air but because he is easy to work with and the kind of person you want on your team."

Rachel Sorkin

"Mark is truly one-of-a-kind in the Marketing, Advertising, Strategy, and Digital Consulting realm. He has an inherent drive that allows him to connect and extrapolate multiple threads of information, planning, strategy, innovation, and execution in order to develop ground-breaking work and experiences. Mark has an innate passion for creating the future and is consistently pushing projects, teams, coworkers, clients, and accounts forward to new extremes; a prime of example of this is during planning sessions, where he often finishes ideas with ‘Why not?’ as he's waiting for the world to catch up to his vision. Whether he's hands-on working in the weeds or plugged-in and presenting to the boardroom, Mark always delivers excellence and performs at the highest levels. Mark's experience in both breadth and depth across industries, sectors, clients, accounts, and projects allows him to see things that most others don't - All of which come through in his everyday work. Mark's passion and ambition are a few of the intangible assets that cannot be cataloged but are easily identifiable when you're working with him. Mark goes above and beyond in every sense and has the track record to prove it."

Grace Tsai

"Mark is bright, ambitious, quality-driven, and big-picture thinking. His cross-platform projects demonstrated his ability to solve for a problem independently and analytically; but what impressed me most was that he went further to collaborate with partners across functions to gather input to ensure his recommendations were realistic and actionable. Having seen so many professionals work without much consideration of how their work may impact the big picture, I found Mark’s approach refreshing."

I have seen and been a part of Mark’s projects, in which he displayed a great sense of creativity, hard work and leadership, including customer usability, competitive analysis, design, and creativity. What began as a small project on application performance turned into an overhaul that reinvented the consumer journey. Multiple clients were impressed with Mark’s approach and are in the process of implementing those solutions today."

Stephanie Giorio

"Mark has a lot of great ideas and knows how to sell them, get them done, and make them shine. He is refreshing in a world that likes to keep doing what has worked in the past (mind you he gets that too), and he likes to bring new ideas combined with smart thinking to the table. He is great at interpreting results, presenting them with ease and clarity. I have never walked away confused or discouraged . . . he breaks it down and tells an engaging story."
