Hailing from Cardiff, Marco trained in gymnastics as a child and then in mime at the Desmond Jones School in London. He started his flying trapeze career in his 40s. While working as a stage technician for years with the Welsh National Opera and the National Theatre, he continued performing as an actor and dancer.
He joined NoFit State Circus 10 years ago and rediscovered his love of heights and bouncing on things. He considers one of his major career milestones to be acquiring Popeye muscles on both arms.
