Before playing in Sweden’s professional basketball league for the Solna Vikings, Marcus played Small Forward for the Towson Tigers, Towson University’s NCAA Division 1 team in the state of Maryland, where he is on the top 20 all-time scoring list.
Following his basketball career, Marcus returned to New York City to pursue a career in creative leadership.
