May 4, 2016

 

Here at Chrome City, we pride ourselves in having ultra-creative and inspiring homies throughout the Chicago area. Each week, the Chrome Chronicle (our news outlet) will share a little bit about these incredible people and why we are excited to feature them as our #ChromeHomie.

Let us introduce our Homie, Marc.

Q: Explain your job position.

 

A: I've never felt like I have had a job. I always describe life after high school (the last 15 years) as a sort of permanent summer vacation. I just do what I love and whatever my mind might dream up. My first love is photography, but I would only describe it as one of the mediums I work within. I hate to call myself a creative, or give myself any title for that matter. Yet, I love solving problems and coming up with ideas to elevate culture. 

 

Q: What is your creative process?

 

A: I'm very much a problem solver. So much of my creative process is trying to solve a problem. I love telling stories that provoke thought or inspiring people to question what is in front of them. 

 

Q: What inspires and motivates you?

 

A: I love a challenge, I love helping people, and solving a good problem.  

 

Q: How did you end up in Chicago?

 

A: Chicago is my first love. I am very proud of the city I have always called home. My family is rooted in Chicago, and I never felt like I had the option to leave. I have 6 nieces and nephews and I would have hated to miss out on seeing them grow up. Some opportunities I may have missed out on by staying in Chicago, I hope to create for myself and others who choose to stay here in the future.

 

Q: What is your favorite part about living in Chicago?

 

It's a tight knit community and has some of the benefits of being a small and big city at the same time. Everyone know everyone, but at the same time it's a big market with lots of opportunity to do new things too. 

 

Q: What has most influenced your career?

 

A: Hip-Hop music has been the sole fundamental art form that has influenced my being since I was a kid. I gravitated to it at young age and am passionate about propelling the culture around it.

 

Q: What is your experience with Alex?

 

A: A friend of many good friends, Alex has always been mysterious and yet a bright positive ray of light. 

 

Thanks for being our Chrome Homie, Marc!
