Meet Marc

I’m the founder, brand strategist, and chief storyteller at WILDSTORY. I help companies build powerful brands and tell authentic stories that fuel their growth.

Honey Nut Cheerios and the story of Buzz the Honey Nut Bee. This is the first strong brand affiliation I remember. And ever since, I’ve been kookoo for cocoa puffs… I mean brands.

I’ve seen first hand how a powerful brand story changes the way people FEEL about you and your brand. And this is what gets me out of bed in the morning, fired-up to help our clients one great story at a time.

My approach to branding and storytelling is different than most. With a background in the movie business, I apply time-tested techniques and methodologies I learned while working for Oliver Stone, Warner Bros, & 20th Century Fox and combine them with the art & science of branding.

"I have shared our work internally and everyone feels we nailed it! Even my boss! Moving forward I will be using all of this for sure and wanted to thank you for going through this process with me for it was so valuable.” - Charlotte Bosley, VP Retail & Brand - El Cap | Earth Treks

Oh, and I think I'm pretty funny. And I’m a loyal friend of snow, mountains, waves, wind, sun, and beer.

Personally, I’m creating and telling my own stories with features in national publications and hosting the “Baby Got Backstory” podcast featuring big brands like, UGGS, K-SWISS, & Build A Bear. I’m also a regular speaker in the Entrepreneur Community and have shared on stage at the following events:

  • Eli Lilly
  • Rad Summit
  • Camp Maverick
  • Denver Startup Week
  • University of Colorado
