Adam’s true passion is storytelling. He loves turning business challenges into opportunities and solutions, with the help of creative stories that move and motivate. He’s directed major television network programming, created multi-media events and websites – all in pursuit of the story.
Adam Marx is the “M” in MK3. His initial comes first, but he’s more comfortable promoting the talent inside the company. Adam’s favorite part of being a founder and co-owner of the company is finding talented people who love to do great work, challenge themselves, and have fun doing it. And it must rub off – most of MK3’s clients keep coming back, because they enjoy the process and love the results.
Adam began his career shooting news for an NBC affiliate in New York, directing commercials throughout New England, and traveling the world with the PBS series “John Stobart’s WorldScape with Walter Cronkite.” He finally sat still long enough to join Cramer Productions, the largest and most successful production company in New England as Senior Creative Director, and for nearly 10 years he collaborated with Gillette, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, E3, Raytheon, Metlife, Ocean Spray, Polaroid, AT&T, Dunkin’ Donuts, Talbot’s, Fidelity, Converse and Reebok.
He doesn’t watch a lot of television, but he helped create reality TV history. After success in the corporate marketing world, Adam “went Hollywood” and directed major network programming, including NBC’s “Access Hollywood,” Dick Clark’s “Your Big Break,” Warner Bros. “Elimidate,” Animal Planet’s “Wild Rescues,” HGTV’s “Weekend Warriors” and “House Hunters,” a TV pilot for Columbia/TriStar Pictures…and the first season of a little reality show on CBS called “Survivor.” Adam returned to New England to re-engage in the advertising and marketing world, and became a principle at Blue Wave Marketing. From there, he formed MK3 Creative, by bringing a strong core team together to offer the creative and strategic power of an ad agency and the execution capabilities of a production company.
Adam graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh in New York with a degree in Mass Communications, after studying for a semester abroad in London, England. In his spare time, he’s a visiting professor at Emerson College, but depending on the season, you may find him learning to fly a Cessna over the South Shore or wakeboarding on the Cape. He’s happiest on the water, in the city, and on the move.
