Marlon Alberetos Greensword was born in 1979 in Spanish Town, Jamaica. He pursued his elementary education in Kitson Town All-Age School, and his secondary education at St.
Catherine High School and St. Jago High School in Jamaica, where he received his high-school diploma. In 2000, he obtained a track-and-field scholarship to Gardner Webb University in Boiling Springs, North Carolina, where he majored in education. Two years later, he transferred to Louisiana State University, where he pursued his athletic activities while majoring in general studies. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in general studies with concentrations in history, economics, and mechanical engineering in Spring 2005. He then pursued another bachelor‟s degree in industrial engineering at Louisiana State University, which he received in Fall 2007.
He is now a candidate for the Master of Science in Industrial Engineering degree at Louisiana State University.
