who is johnmark?

Hi! I'm JohnMark and I love stories. I’ve spent my personal life chasing them across forty countries documenting them with a fountain pen and camera lens.

Professionally, I’ve helped companies tell them more effectively in corporate, entrepreneurial, and freelance capacities. If you'd like to see more of my professional work, brands I've worked with, along with my resume, you can find those here

You can read more about who I am here, but for now, poke around! This site serves as a landing page for how I make sense of my world. If you’d like to work together or just grab a coffee in Brooklyn, reach out to me on Instagram or via email johnmark@jhstillman.com



A lot of thought leaders and agencies will tell you the best brands are the ones facilitating conversation; I’d disagree. Personally and professionally, I’ve found the most successful creatives, influencers, and brands are the ones who position themselves and their organizations in a posture of invitation. They create content others see themselves within; stories their followers and customers feel invited into… a story they can’t help but share. 



I love sharing my adventures, places I've explored, and interesting people along the way but those are just one aspect of my story. The world feels really divisive which is why I'm personally passionate about fostering solidarity around our shared fears, doubts, and insecurities. I think we connect more deeply when we connect from the heart which is why my "personal" blog is where you'll find vulnerable musings about growing up.



I believe the best way to learn about yourself is on the road! I've been able to travel to forty countries on five continents and there's still so much of the world I want to see. On my adventures I've realized travel doesn't have to be as expensive as you think. My goal is to make travel more accessible, so keep reading to find tips and tricks alongside city guides here. 



I love to write but sometimes I can't find the words. These are the stories I can't capture on paper.
