Marco was something of a matinee idol in the Philippines in the '90s and early '00s after starring in a Coca-Cola ad campaign.

After working in sales and in newsrooms, Marco eventually entered agriculture and became, yes, a mushroom farmer.

When he's not busy entrepreneuring, he still finds time to casually take modeling jobs.

And to be featured in magazines.

And to appear at events because he's a brilliant human and v. easy on the eyes.

Reaaaaaally easy on the eyes.

Or no beard.
