The genesis of Marc’s architectural journey started by sketching floor plans from houses he visited from memory at the age of around 6. His academics came from New Jersey Institute of Technology, earning Henry Adams award for the top architectural graduate in 1983. His architectural training led to a diverse field of knowledge of architectural design, site planning, structural design, mechanical and plumbing engineering, and construction administration.
Since partnering with Ken Braswell to establish Planworx Architecture, our projects have extended our geographic reach, from Texas to Maryland, and from Michigan to Florida. Marc is licensed in 12 states and holds certificate numbers in 8 other states.
Marc’s personal interests have overlapped with his professional training. Seeing architecture in different regions on the job has created more interest in traveling. Staying active at work is reflected in staying active in exercising and refereeing high school basketball. Creativity on the job has led to design and sketching as a relaxing hobby. And information technology and code requirements have led to being an avid reader. Then reading propels study, and study to teaching. Marc has taught in various capacities and venues, including faith-based groups since 1982. And teaching has opened doors to ministry, along with charitable and non-profit work, as a “giving back” to society (even beyond the architecture). This is the greatest joy blessing of Marc’s career.
As president of Planworx Architecture, Marc continually challenges his employees on a business and personal level, while sprinkling in good-natured jocularity to create a more positive atmosphere in the work environment. The goal is that Planworx Architecture strives to be highly professional as well as experientially enjoyable.
Marc enjoys traveling with Sandy, his supportive wife of 31 years. Marc also has an adult daughter, Stephanie, living locally.
