About MARCUS: For a kid from Salinas, being on the radio in San Francisco is an absolute dream. I was born in SLO and spent some time in Santa Barbara and Fresno so it's safe to say that I'm a Cali kid through and through. And not just Cali, but Cali coastal. In fact, if I don't have one toe in the Pacific Ocean at all times, I am not okay (sorry Fresno...you were just a fling). As I got older, I realized that my home is here in the Bay. I've lived in Hayward, Palo Alto, SF, Pacifica and now finally (after eight years in Seattle to make sure I wasn't missing anything) I bought a house in Half Moon Bay.

When I'm not on the radio, I LOVE being a Dad and watching my baby daughter discover the world one day at a time and doing projects around the house. You can usually find my family and I at the beach, headed out to Wine Country or just tooling around our favorite Farmer's Market or grocery store (I'm not kidding). I LOVE to cook and prep all the meals at home (including baby food) and LOVE to discover new flavors and dishes especially any recipe that has been handed down through generations or across borders. If you have one, send it over! Thanks for letting me live my dream hosting the morning show here on STAR and hopefully Sandy and I make you laugh daily. We really have the best time and we appreciate you listening more than you know.
