As a graduate student at Southern Illinois University Mark had the privilege of becoming a Research Assistant to world renowned R. Buckminster Fuller, working, studying, and traveling with him for seven years.
Fuller taught Mark that we must develop natural, self-replenishing solar, wind, tidal, and geothermal energy to facilitate the physical and economic success of the world for 100% of humanity. When we have plentiful, sustainable energy, we can create plenty of clean, fresh, potable water. With ample water, we can grow abundant and nourishing food for our expanding population.
Mark accepted Bucky’s idea to create energy self-sufficiency over forty years ago and committed himself to its comprehensive realization. With the resources from the enormous number of books sold—over 500,000,000–licensing and ultimately, selling the Chicken Soup for the Soul company, he invested into the next level of clean technologies to realize those goals. Mark and his wife, Crystal Hansen, have made this goal their focus and commitment to their life’s work. They created Metamorphosis Energy LLC, to facilitate comprehensive energy solutions around the globe. With that world changing goal, they have aggregated an unbeatable leadership team, dedicated to positively affecting over a billion people in the next decade.
