Marcus is originally from Pennsylvania, where he was raised as a diehard Penn State Football (and Steelers) fan. Subsequently, he attended the Pennsylvania State University to earn his bachelor’s degree in communications, majoring in print journalism and sociology. With a strong love of writing since high school, Marcus wrote for numerous campus and city newspapers, websites and blogs. He covered everything from album and film reviews to national music festivals and concerts in hopes of becoming a Rolling Stone reporter. While his career views changed over time, his love for writing did not. Extending his journalism experience to multi-media, he has been working with realtors and homebuilders in the DMV since moving to the area in 2012. He has worked at RLAH Real Estate since 2017.
