Marco was born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, and moved to Florida with his family in 1988. He attended Catholic schools from Kindergarten through High School before coming to Orlando to attend the University of Central Florida. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice in 2009. During his time at UCF, Marco was a part of the Catholic Campus Ministry where he eventually met his wife, Michelle. They were married in 2014 at their parish, Most Precious Blood in Oviedo, and welcomed their son in 2016.
Beginning in 2007, Marco began working for The Catholic Foundation doing research and processing gifts for the Our Catholic Appeal and Alive in Christ campaigns. In 2012, he was given the opportunity of becoming one of the Gifts Managers where he has served since. Marco feels that as Catholics we are called to steward the gifts God has provided so that not only ourselves, but others may prosper. He likes to think that the small role he plays helps to provide the services and assistance for those most in need in our communities.
