Michael Marantz is constantly in pursuit of stirring people to feel the same way he does, alive. He feels so passionately about his mission that he started a company called Already Alive to do just that. As a multidisciplinary storyteller, Director, Composer, Digital Artist, and Experiential Designer, he strives to create work that are not only remembered but used as tools by the viewer in their own journeys through life. His video 'The Future is Ours' reminds us that “The future does not belong to the faint hearted, it belongs to the brave,” and was a key influencer towards the upcoming September 16th TEDxUNPlaza event and it's theme of BRAVE: United in Action. Michael will be sharing his story with those in attendance at the unprecedented TEDxUNPlaza event, amongst a medley of other brave-thinking, game-changing speakers.
