Marc started at Point2 as a member of our Customer Care Team, but very shortly joined our Sales Team after realizing he had quite the knack for it.
A former Registered Massage Therapist, Marc has many other hidden talents including ballroom dancing and ultimate frisbee. He’s also a die-hard Montreal Canadiens fan, but we try not to hold it against him.
We asked Marc to answer a few questions about himself. Here’s what he had to say:
What is your favorite type of music?
Anything with a good beat and reminds me of my youth. I have been listening to a lot of 80’s music lately.
What is your favorite book of all time and why?
The Naked Ape by Desmond Morris. I like the idea of analyzing the human species like we would any animal.
What is your favorite movie of all time?
Sci Fi – Star Wars Ep. IV (the original, not the redone version), Fifth Element, Comedy – Wedding Singer, Super Troopers, Zombie Land, Drama – American History X, Road To Perdition. I really just love movies. Not interested in horror.
If you have an hour of free time to spare, what do you do with it?
Try to get out and play a round of disc golf, or take my dog to the dog park. If it isn’t nice out I try to get things done around the house that have been piling up.

Simple man. Steak, pasta, Mexican.
What is the most interesting place you’ve ever traveled?
France. I did a Normandy tour including Dieppe.
