Mark Mathis is President of Clear Energy Alliance, a company devoted to educating the public on the vital role energy plays in our daily lives. Clear Energy Alliance is known for its short, animated videos on a wide variety of energy topics.
In addition to speaking and consulting, Mathis is a documentary filmmaker and author. He is the producer/director of spOILed, a 2011 film that examines the vital role oil and natural gas plays in our daily lives. In 2016 he released Fractured, a documentary that makes the case that the words and phrases we use in describing energy are dangerously deceptive – sometimes intentionally so.
Mathis is author of Feeding the Media Beast: An Easy Recipe for Great Publicity, which has been used in many universities as a textbook in journalism and communications classes.
Mathis was the Founder and Executive Director of the energy education non-profit organization Citizens’ Alliance for Responsible Energy. In 2006 he testified before Congress on the dangers of environmental extremist groups. Over the years Mathis has been a featured speaker for such varied and distinguished organizations as the National Football League, American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers Association, the Department of Justice, Saudi Research & Marketing, the Independent Petroleum Association of America and many others.
Mathis lives in south Florida with his wife of 26 years, Dianne.
