Marc is a powerful and passionate speaker focused on one of today’s most timely and important topics. He speaks with authority on what he calls,  “A very real social revolution.” “This is absolutely unprecedented. There is a brand new life stage and we are redefining what it means to be over the age of 50, 60, 80, even 100. Never before in history have we been able to ask ourselves at this age, ‘What am I going to do next?’”

Marc delivers a life-affirming, motivational message that leaves everyone inspired to make the rest of their lives the best of their lives. He is the founder of Growing Bolder, a multimedia company producing active lifestyle and wellness content with a focus on sharing the stories of ordinary people who are living extraordinary lives. Produced by an Emmy Award-winning team of broadcast journalists and storytellers, Growing Bolder offers hope, inspiration and possibility through the examples of men and women who are smashing stereotypes, redefining the possibilities of life after 50 and demonstrating to audiences of all ages that when it comes to living big, bold lives, it’s not about age, it’s about attitude.

"Growing Bolder is a wrecking ball of truth and inspiration. Marc’s mission to rebrand aging represents a desperately needed paradigm shift."

— Cody Sipe, PhD + Co-founder, Functional Aging Institute

We are aged less by our years and more by our beliefs.
