A native of Brazil, Marco was always surrounded by music. Both his parents played the piano, which was the first instrument, however, he still likes to play keyboards and piano, mainly to capture new ideas for the band. At the age of 15, Marco’s interest turned towards the drums, and currently is his main instrument. He studied drums while he was in Brazil with Mauricio Leite, a well known and respected drummer and in United States with Chuck Brown (Terry Bozzio, Will Kennedy, Jeff Campitelli, David Garibaldi). Marco played with local Brazilian bands Hades warden, Evora and Móbil Gigante. He also played in a Symphony-X tribute band, and he recorded with the band Evora the song “Peruvian Skies” from Dream Theater for a Brazilian Tribute CD entitled “Lake of Fire” which can be heard at his Soundcloud profile. Currently Marco resides between São Paulo, Brazil and Seattle, Washington and plays with the bands Pamela Moore, The Element , The Absent Light, A Dying Planet, Sigma Project and Blue Helix. He officially endorses Pearl Drums, Axis Percussion and Samson.
