Our Story

In today’s media landscape, audiences are fragmented and hard to reach. Advertising is skipped or barely remembered. So how can brands connect with their communities?

That’s the challenge that drives us at Amaze Media Labs. Our mission is to create passionate communities for the world’s leading brands. We combine access to celebrities and influencers with unique perspectives and deep media industry roots to create branded content and experiences that transforms audiences into fans, and brands into stars of the show. 

This is our Amazing story.

Amaze Media Labs:
Getting The Band Back Together

At Amaze Media Labs, we know what it takes to create passionate communities for brands. We’ve been creating content and experiences people are passionate about for more than 20 years. 

Our leadership team - Robert Tuchman, Brett Sklar and Stephen Master - first came together at TSE Sports and Entertainment, which became one of the top ranked experiential sports & entertainment marketing agencies. We made the INC 500 list and were later acquired by NFL On Location and Endeavor IMG. 

Brett and Rob’s next venture was Goviva, a company that created experiences built specifically around celebrities across sports, culinary, entertainment and fashion talent. In 2015, Goviva was acquired by the world’s leading talent agency, Creative Artists Agency (CAA), where Brett and Rob helped co-lead the “Premium Experience” group. 

While Brett and Rob were at CAA, Stephen went to Nielsen where he headed the Global Sports Group and created the "Fanalytics" platform. While at Nielsen, Stephen worked with every major global sports organization to develop their media strategy and grew their sports business more than 20 times to become a $100M division.

Now, Rob, Brett and Stephen are “getting the band back together” to help brands succeed on the next frontier of community engagement with real-time podcasts, streaming media and live experiences. Rob is also the host of “How Success Happens,” Entrepreneur Media’s top weekly podcast featuring conversations with many of today’s most inspiring entrepreneurs. 

Now that we’re back together, we’re bringing deep insight and relationships developed over 20 years in sports, entertainment, and lifestyle media to create branded content and experiences that audiences love, trust and share. 

At Amaze, we’re building content and experiences that connect brands with passionate communities. Come build something amazing with us.
