Marc graduated from the University of Minnesota with a B.A. in Political Science and a minor in Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature. After experiencing Project Success in his Middle and High Schools, Marc stayed involved during college by volunteering with their middle school musicals and BWCA experiences and joined the staff in 2012. He is passionate about youth performance, and created an annual talent night at St. Joan of Arc, which benefits youth homelessness outreach organizations. He also performs in musical groups throughout the Twin Cities and is excited to continue this new phase of his life with an organization that helped him be who he is today.
