Hi. I’m Marvin, an entrepreneur, marketer, investor and an unshakeable optimist. I also represent Team Ravenclaw.

I’m here to help.

By Day, I employ my skills as a full-stack marketer at Jade Orchard, a premiere digital marketing agency in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Boasting over 300 successful partnerships, Jade Orchard works with startups, Fortune 500 companies, private institutions, government organizations, and more. Some of our well-known clients include EA Sports, Institute of Technology, Newmark Cornish & Carey, and Ben & Jerry’s.

At night, I run a gelato company called Pop Up Gelato (PUG). I’m a co-founder and currently the CEO.

PUG is a business that I’m extremely proud of not because of who our clients are, but because of the team we’ve assembled and its culture. It’s the type of culture where team members take pride in what they do, work hard for each other, and genuinely love growing together.

Pop Up Gelato serves three areas: San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Orange County.

Connect with me on a deeper level and find out what I’m all about.
