Bryan Marscovetra is what you’d refer to simply as a “sweet dude.” He’s a laid-back, go-with-the-flow type guy, despite his life being a balancing act. A manager for a large bank by day he balances his corporate responsibilities with his passion for music as singer of the band“Factories” at night. “Whereas the Camino has been waiting for Eric McCune, I find that it came to me,” said Bryan. “I’ve been trying to say ‘yes’ more often, and when the guys asked me if I wanted to go, I just said, ‘yes.’ ” He’s hoping to get the experience of a lifetime, and for a good cause too. “Of course, if I can avoid being mauled by a bull in Pamplona, that would be great, too,” said Bryan.
