HEY, I'M MARK...
the co-founder of the Alberta Beer Festival (ABF) and the EXPLORE84 Project.
I'm also a serial entrepreneur who is a passionate advocate for the craft beer and spirit community. When I'm not working, I love being outside - running and biking. For me, life is about seeking balance - although I rarely succeed in finding it!
I also host two podcasts that showcase different facets of my personality: 'Let’s Meet For A Beer' (LMFAB) and the 'EXPLORE84 Podcast.' I began podcasting as a way to share the incredible stories of the amazing individuals I encounter. Podcasting serves as my avenue for staying curious, constantly asking questions, and learning something new each day.
Life is a journey - and this is mine…
I've spent the last 20 years fully immersed in entrepreneurship, constantly learning from those around me. It's a path that chose me, as it does for many true entrepreneurs.
For me, entrepreneurship has ultimately been about community - which seems to be a major foundation of all of my ventures. From co-founding and running some of Canada's largest beer festivals to creating a community platform for wellness, balance, and storytelling, every project I am part of keeps me excited to wake up in the morning.
