Marquette After Hours...

Marquette moved to Brooklyn as a late teen exhilarated by his family’s incredible stories about their life in New York. He loves to travel and has gone to distant places such as Africa, Vietnam, and Korea. Marquette loves wine, coffee, fitness, and the occasional cigar. Marquette and Damaris married six years ago after meeting in New York City. Together they are raising Sugar, their dog. When he is not traveling or working, he spends what is left of his time working on his doctoral project, which focuses on reducing loneliness in older adults.
