When Marc is not facilitating transformation, you might find him with his wife and daughter pruning fruit trees on their organic farm in the Santa Cruz Mountains, skateboarding through the local farmers market, playing out in the ocean on the North Coast, or scaling a big wall in Yosemite National Park.

Marc is committed to truth, compassion, and conscious future creation for himself and all others. During and after college, Marc ran several nonprofit programs, which provided long-term leadership development and social support for at-risk youth and their families. He now supports local nonprofits in Santa Cruz County and chairs bi-annual partner meetings for the Agricultural Lands Conservancy.
