Nathan has always loved movies, but his real passion began when he saw Die Hard and Terminator 2: Judgment Day while growing up in South Florida. Ever since then, movies have become his life; and his mind was made up that would be his career choice.
After successfully working in the Internet market space since 1996, Nathan M Rose founded Magical Mountain, LLC that worked alongside Walt Disney World Theme Parks and Resorts with new events and attraction publicity. Magical Mountain, LLC provided an outlet for The Walt Disney Company to reach out directly to their fans during a time period they did not have their own online initiatives. Magical Mountain eventually garnered recognition from the Walt Disney World Company which lead to Magical Mountain eventually hosting their own events inside the Walt Disney World Theme Parks and Disney Cruise ships with Disney's full approval. Mr. Rose was also consulted by various news organizations about his knowledge and experiences about the Walt Disney Company including Sun-Sentinel, Orlando Sentinel, and IndyStar. Magical Mountain was successfully sold to an investor group in 2009.
Later on, in 2006 Mr. Rose along with Eric English founded FlickDirect Inc. -- fulfilling his lifelong dream to be part of the film industry. FlickDirect has grown to become a well-respected resource for both cinema-goers and studios throughout the entertainment industry.
In addition to overseeing operations of FlickDirect, Nathan has also appeared in various online productions and films.
Mr. Rose attended the University of Florida majoring in Computer Science and Marketing.
