Marco knew he wanted to be an artist from an early age, inspired by his grandmother, Dorothy – a talented artist and oil painter in Northeast Ohio. She was extremely supportive of his interest, and the two would often draw together. She ultimately suggested he channel his artistic capabilities into a career in architecture.
Marco took the advice to heart, and his artistic aptitude blossomed with his parents’ support; before long, he was taking art classes at the local art college – a precocious 7-year old in a class full of college students.
His passion for architecture was truly piqued by a trip he took to Europe as a 12-year-old (an “overload” of incredible cities, buildings, art, and artifacts), and the rest was history.
Marco enjoys spending his free time with his wife Monica, and children Ava and Jack.
