About Me


I am Marcus Bridgewater: CEO, creator, and influencer. In 2018, I launched Choice Forward LLC, my wellness company. We offer workshops, presentations, life coaching, and more to empower individuals and strengthen communities. 

In December of 2019, I began sharing videos online at the suggestion of a former mentee of mine. He felt that my message of kindness, patience, and positivity would be well received by the internet, and thus I began my journey as a content creator. 

Since then, I have been fortunate to have my work featured in a variety of press including Vogue, The Los Angeles Times, and the New York Times. 

I am humbled by the response I have received to my message, and I look forward to continuing this adventure.

Garden Marcus is a joint effort between myself and Choice Forward's Co-Founder, Dana Hammarstrom, who films & edits all my videos. She makes content creation that much easier, and that much more fun. I'm grateful to have a strong team working with me!

For Your


The corona virus pandemic has left us feeling exhausted, stressed, and defeated. Many people have worked from home since March of 2020 which has created a disconnect between employees, their coworkers, and their business. Morale is low across the world, but the workplace is especially struggling. 

If your organization is in need of positivity & motivation, Choice Forward is available for Zoom webinars & presentations! Let me uplift your team with my techniques on developing and maintaining a positive mindset. If you are interested in more information, please email Dana at or call +1 (346) 305-9685‬.
