Marco Antonio Machado, SJ grew up along the border between Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, TX. Marco has lived among two cultures, the Mexican which he was born into and the American which he has learned to adapt into. Marco studied Mechanical Engineering and enjoyed it. He wanted to work in designing and fixing airplanes, but God had other plans for him. He entered the Society of Jesus in August 2016 and is currently doing his philosophy studies at Loyola University Chicago. Marco enjoys playing soccer, watching movies, and (when there is time) drawing.
