Beverage Manager and Manager, The Cache
Born and raised right here in Fort Collins, Marc is a graduate of Poudre High School and received a bachelor’s degree in beverage studies from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York.
“Then the mountains called me back home,” Marc said. He continued to hone his beverage and management skills as bar manager at the Moot House, then in sales for BreakThru Beverage Group in Northern Colorado. Most recently, he was Food and Beverage Outlet Manager for the Marriot here in Fort Collins.
Marc’s beverage philosophy: “I like that wine, beer and liquor can be just as complex as food, they can transform in so many ways,” Marc said. “Plus, food and beverage complement each other so well and pairing them can enhance a meal so much more. “
Here at Ginger and Baker, Marc manages The Cache and oversees the beverage programs throughout the building. “Ginger and Baker is one of the most innovative restaurants in town,” Marc said. “I love the level of creativity and the chance to work with this team.”
“Here in The Cache, I’m working hand in hand with the chef to create menu pairings that will make it the most enjoyable experience possible,” Marc said. “We’re continuing to build on our Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and want Ginger and Baker to become a wine destination, a place people seek out for the expected and the unexpected.“
“Our cocktail programs in The Cache, the Café and the Rooftop also continue to be innovative, yet approachable, because we use as many fresh, local ingredients as we can,“ Marc concluded. “Every season, there’s something to get excited about.”
When not working, Marc loves being up in the mountains, hiking, camping and backpacking. He also spends a lot of time on his road bike enjoying the bike trails and parks.
His favorite pie? My dad’s favorite is pumpkin, we have it every year on his birthday in June, so I think I’ll have to go with that.”Back To Team
