Marshall has worked on various mediums in front of and behind the camera. When he was 27, he directed, co-wrote, produced, edited and starred in his first feature film, "Division III: Football’s Finest." He cut his teeth in branded entertainment through commercial competitions on the crowdsourced studio, Tongal.com. He was the first to be awarded “Tongaler of the Year” and was later inducted into their “Hall of Fame.” He has directed, written and produced over fifty commercials (for broadcast and digital distribution) with producing partner Tyler A. Hawes, through their production company, Convoy Entertainment. Marshall continues to develop features and series while working directly with brands on broadcast and digital campaigns. His other interests include traveling with his wife, volunteering at dog rescues, football, DIY, gardening, walking his dog, and scotch.
