For well over a decade, Macko has provided the vision and strategy around who Stok is and what we do. Today, he’s focused on scaling the Stok brand and sourcing partners across the US and internationally.
ON REIMAGINING THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT:
“I look at almost every building through a lens of what could have been different? Why did they design and build it this way and what's changed over the years since it was built. By looking to buildings from the past, you can better understand how to positively affect occupants and the climate today. My work at Stok brings together differences in skill, age and perspective to fuse ideas together that radically change how we see the process of designing and building today.”
ON A FUTURE THEY WANT TO LIVE IN:
“I want to live in a future where I can be sure the air, water, and food we consume have been sourced and tested from trusted parties and where the public holds them accountable. Too much of our current day is bottom line focused, where money has become our number one above all else. Capitalism isn’t the problem, regulation of that capitalism is however our biggest challenge and the way in which my top three are everyone’s top three.”
