He is also the voice behind countless advertising campaigns, as well as a multitude of broadcast and multimedia narrations.
Marc’s journey began over thirty years ago when he appeared in an ABC Movie of The Week. The opportunity to be on the set and experience the “magic” of the production process was a unique catalyst. It stoked an evolving intrigue in what would become a lifelong passion for performance. Marc was also entranced by radio as a child. There was something captivating about the theater of the mind that was radio. At seven years old, this too was “magical” for Marc and would set the stage for events years later in his life.
At seventeen years old, Marc got his first shot at turning on the microphone at a radio station in his home town of Dallas, Texas. At twenty, he was already working at the ABC Radio Network. By the time he was twenty one, found himself earning a living as a radio personality with his own show in Dallas. Not only was he able to satisfy a dream that was years in the making, but he was also exposed to voice over and the additional creative outlet that it provided. During his years working as a radio personality, he was also immersing himself into every situation he could to develop his skills as a voice talent and actor. Throughout his career in radio, Marc worked in premier timeslots on a number of marquee radio stations. His voice has been heard on the air in markets such as Dallas, New Orleans and Los Angeles. Years after his first opportunity at ABC Radio Network, he returned to host his own nationally syndicated radio show that was heard in dozens of markets around the United States and abroad. Though he was fortunate to achieve a tremendous amount of success in broadcasting, he left the air a number of years ago to focus on an already successful career in voice over and acting.
