A two week Caribbean island hopping adventure at age 13 sparked Marc’s interest in sailing, and he quickly picked up as much knowledge and experience as possible. Before long he was winning regattas, took first place in his Texas youth racing circuit, and was competing nationally on various single-handed racing dinghies. His plans of one day sailing in the Olympics changed, as life and young-adulthood shifted toward a career in music. By age 30, Marc had toured the US in various bands and purchased his own sailboat - a Pearson 26’. In 2011 he and a small crew of musicians set sail on a tour of the Gulf Coast by way of sailboat and bicycles. After successfully completing 33 shows in 38 days, Captain Marc wrote the book “Guitar Strings and Sailboat Things” which describes the adventures of the crew on their sailing tour. The book was published, along with a music album recorded on the sailboat, in 2012. He later upgraded to a slightly larger boat, but sold it after deciding that it wasn’t suitable for the next tour - a world tour. While in Northern California in 2017, Marc found the right boat - a 50’ trimaran named Tatzelwurm.
Currently, Marc is writing and recording new music while preparing the tour boat to set sail.
