Marcus was born in Bristol in 1969, has a younger brother who now lives in New Zealand; he believes it's nothing personal. He spent a few years of his childhood in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait as his father was a Civil Engineer, and this opened his eyes at an early age to travel.
He went to school in Bristol, and then on to Southampton University to study Geography, where he met is now wife, Sarah, who is originally from Godalming. After University they together embarked upon a 10 month round the world adventure, of course over 20 years ago it was before international mobile phones and the internet, so it really was an adventure across 4 continents. After returning from his travels and considerably lighter (after the last few months in India and Nepal), Marcus moved to South East London and worked for 15 years within the paper trade.
Marcus moved to Godalming with Sarah in 2001, they have two teenage daughters and two slightly younger sons, and started working with Stefan at Vantage Publishing back in mid 2009. He loves meeting such a huge variety of local business owners, and the huge diversity of types of businesses, and loves the fact that our publications make a real positive difference to the community and to local people's lives.
