In 2008, Mark Horvath, now known to many as @hardlynormal, set out to film the stories of America’s homeless and share them with as many people as possible on InvisiblePeople.tv. Since then, he has become an internationally recognized activist and ambassador for the millions of individuals and families who reside in shelters, motels, tents along the streets and under highway bridges across North America. InvisiblePeople.tv goes beyond the rhetoric, statistics, political debates, and limitations of social services to examine poverty via a medium that audiences of all ages can understand, and can’t ignore. Mark has been featured by the L.A. Times, CNN, CBS, Mashable.com and NPR. He’s spoken at a number of conferences and events including The Geneva Forum on Social Change, Blog World, U.S Department of State’s Tech@State, Gnomedex, 140 Character Conference, Nonprofit Technology Conference and South by Southwest. The Huffington Post named him one of 11 Twitter activists you should follow. Youtube gave InvisiblePeople.tv unprecedented exposure allowing Horvath to curate YouTube’s homepage for a day. Mark was asked to speak at Twitter, Inc and at charity: water. Mark has consulted for Los Angeles Police Department and USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism among many others.
