Marcos hails from the Valle de San Fernando and spent most of his life in the beautiful City of Angels. He attended Loyola Marymount
University where he would first meet the Jesuits. After college he
went to live on a tiny island in Micronesia, where he taught high
school as a Jesuit Volunteer. He returned to Los Angeles to
continue the work of seeking justice through education as a high
school counselor and earned a master’s in secondary education. He’s
passionate about community, music, and, after finishing his first
marathon, is discovering a love for running. Marcos recently completed his master's in social work with an emphasis on migration studies at Loyola University Chicago.
