This is the story about the lessons learned from a former Wall Street executive turned exotic adventure travel company owner, photographer, furniture designer, and happy philanthropist.
Mark Lakin was by many standards extremely successful and fortunate. He had the high-paying job in NYC and was a true professional.
To escape the fast-paced business pressures of life as an Attorney working in a fast-paced, high stress financial industry in NYC, Mark took his vacations to explore exotic travel, recharge, unwind,and reconnect with nature and the world.
In his journeys Mark met people and witnessed the beauty of nature and the pains of poverty of people around the world. He searched his soul and followed his heart to leave the traditional Wall Street world behind and become an entrepreneur and philanthropist.
Mark created EpicRoad, an exotic, luxury travel company and co-owns this venture with Marc Chafiian. According to Lakin, "Travel is the window through which we see the corners of the earth in all their majesty. "
The goal of Epic Road is to open the possibilities of global luxury exotic adventure travel to others with the concept that according to Mark," If you seek out the worlds greatest treasures you will experience magic. "
Epic Road creates customized travel adventures to remote jungles and beaches, to see the rarest species on earth whether in Africa or Antarctica, to visit remarkable tribes, and even those once-in-lifetime exotic honeymoon adventures.
It followed that Mark would open up Mark Lakin Photography Gallery in NYC with photos inspired by all his exotic adventures. In addition, Mark designs custom furniture using photographs designed into metal.
If you're in NYC , be sure to visit Mark Lakin Photography's inside his West End Gallery 750 Greenwich St@W 11 Street, New York,NY 10014 or call ahead (646)580-3026 . Open 7 days a week from 12p.m. to 9 p.m.
Mark is now incorporating exotic travel photos into metal-sculptured custom furniture creations for the discriminating buyer who wants one-of-a-kind pieces.
As a result of all these exotic travel adventures,Mark has learned about the needs of people around the globe and continues to help many with his philanthropic efforts.
