Moving to Boston was a huge change for him. He moved here with a determined mindset, and has done all he can to influence others in a positive way. During his time here, he founded the BAC Interior Design Society, and served as President during the 2010-11 school year. He as served as both Vice President and President of Atelier, Student Government. He is currently Past President of Atelier, and is a student member of IIDA (International Interior Design Association). He has also served as a Student Ambassador to welcome new students during New Student Orientation. Marcus has seen a lot of success in building community among the interior design students and the entire student body.
Marcus was introduced to interior design when a friend suggested that he take a class because it was obvious it interested him. He is passionate about design because he is passionate about people. "As designers, we have control over the environments in which people live, work and play," he says, "consequently, our ability to influence them is exponential." Marcus also loves fashion design. He views fashion, graphics, interior design, and architecture as simply different scales in the design realm, all with the same ability to create beautiful spaces and experiences. He uses Instagram and Pinterest to explore, analyze, and expand his view of the world on a daily basis.
