Marcus is a native of Los Angeles and currently resides in Orlando, FL, where he is currently carrying out an Attractions-based internship at Walt Disney World. He recently graduated from UCLA in 2015 with a BA in Sociology. Marcus's drum corps career started in 2009 as a performer with Pacific Crest Drum & Bugle Corps. After three cherished summers there, his journey with the Blue Devils Organization began when he auditioned for the 2012 edition of the 'A' Corps. Marcus had the privilege of helping the group earn their 15th and 16th World Championship Titles during his 3-year run, and went on to tour Europe and Taiwan in 2015 with the newly founded 'I' Corps as a brass performer and clinician immediately after aging out. As an instructor, Marcus enjoys serving as Visual Caption Head at Santa Monica and San Pedro High Schools, as well as being part of the Visual teams at Crescenta Valley and Pacific Palisades High Schools, all in the Los Angeles area. This is Marcus's first summer on the instructing side of the Drum & Bugle Corps activity and he is thankful to be part of such an outrageously proficient team of instructors.
