Axiom Zen’s boombastic evangelist has a history of shooting for the moon. The founder of Hammer & Tusk, a force driving virtual reality (VR) into the mainstream, Axiom Zen was lucky to acquire Mack when we acquired his company. Mack first started exploring social currencies in 2013 with Clamshells, a white label, Twitter-powered transaction system. That was also the year he got his first bitcoin—and lost it. An advisor to multiple startups, the former VP of Marketing at Tapstream (an app marketing cloud service), and co-founder of Compass Engine, Mack’s experience is a lot like him: results-orientated, wholly impressive, and unwilling to be defined by a neat little box.
In a perfect summation of his shut-up-and-ship-it attitude, Mack conceived the “Terrorist-to-Coward” Chrome extension in a single afternoon; days later, USA Today and the CBC came calling. Since joining Axiom Zen, he’s built out our in-house VR team, launched the AI newsletter Singularity Map, and become the voice of Midas Guide, Axiom Zen’s blockchain arm. His most notable contribution, however, is helping ethereal ideas get to tangible proof-of-concept in record time.
Like lighthouses that help steer Axiom Zen towards the future, Mack lights fires in product and marketing to see which ones burn the brightest.
