The Views Were Nice, But The Food Was Better
Even as a kid, I always liked my food international. Whenever I would go to a restaurant with my Dad, they'd always offer me a kids menu. Waiters were clearly not used to a 7-year-old Marcel ordering a beef carpaccio as a starter and seafood linguine as a main. "The portion is quite big for a child," is what I'd often hear. But my Dad, without any hesitation, would always say: "He got this."
9 Years Long Ballet
Social embarrassment is basically my cardio at this point. Just the other day, I fully introduced myself to a random guy at work. I assumed he was doing a trial shift, so I went: "Hi, I'm Marcel. It's so nice to meet you! What's your name?" The poor guy looked at me a bit terrified. When I realized he was a stranger about to pick up some carton boxes, I cringed my way up the stairs in silence. But that is nothing!
One Day at a Time, Gemini
Geminis are expressive and represent two different personalities in one. Maybe that's why some of the best actors in the world are Geminis? I share my birthday, June 9th, with two iconic actors- Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp and I'm an actor myself (although placing myself next to these two probably sounds a bit sad, well, you get the point.) We're curious and affectionate. We go from an emotional wreck to a self-made hero within 6 minutes. We need excitement and fight fiercely for what makes us feel passionate.
Puzzle of the Universe
Under a firmament full of stars I hang like a painting on the wall: human, emotions, color, me, you know my shades, my love.
The Perks of Being a Vintage Flower
You might be thinking, "Marcel, what on earth is a vintage flower?" Fair enough. A vintage flower refers to a person whose fashion style is characterized by choosing what they wear through the prism of being unapologetically themselves. Someone who puts their spin on vintage outfits, making them unique.

10 Things I Love About You
Dear Padella Shoreditch, It's Marcel, your host. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Either if it's for allowing me to meet some of my favorite humans or being surrounded by passion and hard work every day. You make my belly laugh, but you also make sure to keep it full.
Soundtrack Your Zen
Whenever I feel anxious, there is no better way to calm my nerves than to listen to a good soundtrack. Either that, or pacing around while emptying the fridge. Or sometimes both.
If Flick, then Pick
Let me start by saying that movies made me the person I am today, and many times have even saved my life. Was that too dramatic? Alright. Essentially, they have been making my life better since 1999. I consider passion to be one of the most beautiful emotions one can share. Lucky for me, movies and TV shows are mine. That passion made me want to become an actor and a filmmaker, and today I can use both these words to describe my path. Was that inspirational? I hope so. Now, let's get to the exciting part!
