Industry Experience

Marc graduated from the NAFA-East15 Theatre Programme with First-Class Honours and was awarded the Best Graduate Award in 2012. He acted in both English and Mandarin productions during his studies at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA), giving him a unique foundation fusing theatre practices from both the East and West cultures.

He was also Director of Youth (2011-2012) at the Buds Theatre Company - Buds Youth Theatre and Associate Artiste (2013-2014) at the Ravindran Drama Group.

He taught at various international schools in Singapore before moving to Vietnam, where he headed the Drama and Student Service departments at the Saigon Institute of Technology as part of the Houston Community College Acting Course in Ho Chi Minh City. He also founded a bilingual theatre company, Deep Acting Productions, while in Vietnam.

He then went to Jakarta and Bali to assume the role of acting coach for the Trans-Studio indoor theme park where he trained performers in acting and physical conditioning.
