︎Back in the Big Apple.

My name is Marcus 👋🏻, and I'm an art director/writer from Singapore, currently studying at the School Of Visual Arts’ Advertising Program in New York, New York 🍎. My earliest memories of ‘advertising’ were those old Cadbury commercials, when nine-year old me realized someone could have a little fun for a living. Fast forward eighteen odd years and I’m living in the Big Apple, still hungry for a bite. Oh, I’m also a shiba uncle 🐕, a long-play afficionado and a fan of trippy visuals.
