His Mother and Grandmother whipped up the most colossal Sunday and Holiday dinners you can imagine. Everything was made from scratch so it was an all-day affair. He would long to help as he watched them clean, prepare, and cook the meals which included various sauces made from fresh vegetables his Grandfather grew in his garden. Witnessing his Step-father grilling steaks and readying other “macho” meals, Marlon aimed to inherit the throne of the “King of the Fire” as his Step-father had often deemed himself. “I was fascinated by the colors of the dishes, the aromas of the various seasonings used, and of course, the incredible way they all came together to taste as good as they looked and smelled.”, exclaims Marlon with a smile. This was the beginning of his love affair with food!
Chef Marlon’s family has always been an integral part of realizing his love for the kitchen. “As I reflect on my life, I have begun to understand that I have always connected my appreciation for the culinary arts with my family. I love to see them smile after taking a bite of a dish I have concocted and hear the praise when the taste exceeds their imaginations. Seeing the enjoyment on their faces gives me the confidence I need to push forward and introduce my culinary skills to the world. Without my family, I wouldn’t view food as fun or as the career choice I so longed for. I do it all for them. Whether I am home or in a professional kitchen, I am cooking for my family.”
Fast forward to 2012 and Chef Marlon is now an honored graduate of Le Cordon Bleu with a degree in Culinary Arts and a candidate for a Bachelor’s in Culinary Management. He is certified through ServSafe for food and alcohol handling. He is also a member of the American Personal & Private Chef Association (APPCA) and a American Culinary Federation (ACF) Certified Culinarian. He is also the Sous Chef of the Holiday Inn - Pittsburgh AIrport and Iron City Grille in Pittsburgh, PA.
Chef Marlon now plans to bring his enthusiasm for all things culinary to your home and provide your own family with a bit of happiness through his delicious cuisines!

You know the drill - money is tight so your spouse tells you to not spend too much money. So you start 'brown-bagging-it' to work. You feel a little foolish, maybe a little humiliated, that you’re forced to do this but you have no other choice. So you make up some story for your co-workers like, 'I’m trying a special diet' so you don’t look like a cheap-skate.

Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.

She meshes these two passions in a rather mind-blowing talk on two cutting-edge brain studies that might point to a new frontier in understanding how (and what) we think.
