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!

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
