Marchant brings with him over six years experience in the print industry from working at a few different media outlets, including his helping to launch Saratoga Today newspaper in 2006. Marchant says he will continue working part-time for the newspaper, where he has many friends that often he considers “family.”

Marchant hails from Arlington, MA. He actually schooled at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where his passion for Engineering and the Environment found him head over heels in love with the Capital Region.
