Before stepping into the advertising arena, Marcus co-founded a startup in the music and tech sphere, leading initiatives at giants like Apple and crafting digital strategies for the iconic Beyoncé. More recently, Marcus shares his wealth of knowledge in his bestselling book, For The Culture. I loved reading this book. It delves deep into the nexus between culture and human tendencies.
