Pronouns: he/him

Marko brings a passion for public health and international development issues to Elevate. Before joining the Elevate team, he worked with major nonprofit clients for Pathways to Growth, a Florida-based grant writing company. 

His projects centered around critical public health issues, and his efforts helped his clients raise money to support critical research for high-profile scientists at major universities and labs across the country.

Marko holds an MA in International Affairs and BA in Political Science from The George Washington University. Outside of the world of proposals and prospects, he enjoys playing basketball with his friends, watching old movies with his wife, and playing with his two sons. 


What is your hidden talent?

I'm a decent basketball player.

What punctuation mark would you be and why?

Comma, because there is always something to add.

Watching an old movie with my wife. Love those moments!
