Marcus has been a resident faculty member at Darlington since 2006 and currently serves as dean of residential life and head of Thornwood House. He previously served as desktop support specialist, but made the transition to head of house in 2009 so he and his family could be more involved in student life. Marcus’ background in the residential environment, both as a former boarding student and a resident faculty member, make him a natural for this role. He holds a B.S. from Virginia Commonwealth University. Marcus enjoys skydiving, SCUBA diving, spelunking and spending time with his family. His wife, Melinda, is Darlington’s director of library services, and his daughters, Addie (’17) and Julia (’18), are current students.
