He’s an animal lover

What’s more swoon-worthy than a man who loves animals? Marc loves his dogs, so his bio reads, “father to Luna dog”.

He has several nicknames for Luna including ‘Lu Lu’, ‘Lulubell’ and ‘Baby Girl’. Luna is a rescue dog and has her own Instagram page!

What inspires you? To me its infact the journey of finding new ways to be inspired, thats what currently drives me! A never ending quest for further growth, maturity, wisdon, health, wealth and happiness. I shot this a couple months ago with @tanyatiffinphotography Straight after a few of the toughest months I have had in years but it was in the search of growth and change that things, well….changed. Emotionally tough times really do manifest in the body as ailments. Going from almost never getting sick to an unexpected illness and surgery which meant weeks of not being able to do what I loved. This showed me that its time to change my mindset. Making a concerted effort to have small daily goals or larger weekly goals is key to a happy mind and soul. None of us are machines and we all go through tough times even though it doesn’t always seem so on social media. Its more than just diet, its a mindset. Thankfully I now feel stronger than ever, mentally, emotionally and physically.

He loves motorbikes

Marc enjoys exploring Cape Town on his motorbike.

The woman he ends up with will have to get used to Sunday morning rides on the hunky model’s motorbike. We don’t know how she will cope!
