–       Marcus’ love for cooking started at 6 years old when he started making pancakes from scratch.

–       When he went to the Military as an Engineer, he would go to the kitchens and cook and everyone would say his food was good.

–       His brother told him he would disown him if he didn’t take this craft serious and go to culinary school.  So he did just that.

–       Marcus says he can cook almost anything.

–       When he was in school he would pack up homemade lunches and go around to hair shops selling his lunches.

–       He ended up becoming the private chef for one of the Housewives of Atlanta and has been getting calls ever since.

–       His business has grown by word of mouth and is beginning to create a buzz around Atlanta.

–       Marcus is married to this industry and loves the challenge of it.

–       He’s very competitive and doesn’t believe in losing.  However he says if he doesn’t win Hell’s Kitchen, he will definitely learn a lot.

–       This jokester loves laughing and making situations light but refuses to go out without a fight.  He’s coming to take over Hell’s Kitchen!
