"Life isn’t long enough to waste on boring problems," declares Marcus. He prefers challenging, complicated projects, and says his solution to problems is to avoid them in the first place. "I strive to correct mistakes before they get built, steer projects to be well executed, and keep our reputation strong in the construction industry." Ask Marcus about professional recognition and he responds in true team spirit. "I don’t win awards," he says. "Projects do." Outside the office, Marcus is a fan of the trading card game Magic: The Gathering, and asserts that "all of life’s lessons can be learned from watching Star Wars Episodes 4-6."
