An accomplished entrepreneur and digital marketer, Marcus started his career as a freelance marketer while attending UCCS from 2009-2014. Before graduating with his bachelor’s degree in Business, he co-founded the university’s first student-run marketing club: The UCCS American Marketing Association. Upon departure, Marcus had made a name for himself as an experienced marketer and had the opportunity to spearhead the marketing for Eco Cabins, one of the first builders in the tiny house movement. With them, he had the opportunity to market the first tiny home model featured on the HBA Parade of Homes in the country - Winning the 2014 Colorado Springs Parade of Homes’ People’s Choice Award.
In efforts to continue work with the Colorado Springs’ HBA, EcoCabins decided to organize a complimentary event during the opening weekend of the 2015 & 2016 Parade of Homes. For both summers, Marcus marketed/organized the world’s largest tiny house exhibit (50 tiny houses), The Tiny House Jamboree, which took place in Colorado Springs, CO. This event brought over 50,000 people from all 50 states and 14 countries, gaining international attention. With events being hosted at The United States Air Force Academy and The Western Museum of Mining and Industry, The Tiny House Jamboree had instilled also itself as one of the largest events in Colorado Springs history - The New Yorker (http://www.newyorker.com/business/currency/little-houses-by-the-prairie.)
In the Summer of 2018, Marcus coordinated his own tiny house event (out-of-pocket) called, The People’s Tiny House Festival, which drew in over 20,000 attendees and brought in an estimated economic impact of $2.4 Million to the Colorado Springs’ economy. Today Marcus focuses his efforts on making The People’s Tiny House Festival (also referred to as People’s Fest) an event that accurately gives patrons a taste of southern Colorado culture while also exhibiting downsized living options for all stacks of consumers.
