Marcus Ashley

Marcus just can't resist information. Though a dangerously time-sucking proclivity in the age of Google, as a general rule if it exists he is curious about it. Also he reads other stuff. You know, books and such. Therefore he's chock full of arcane data which is, let's face it, mostly useless. Except when it isn't, which mainly occurs in the course of pursuing his foremost passion: world-building.

In addition to writing and fervently following cutting edge advancements in the sciences, Marcus is a long-time actor, most recently guest-starring on the season 4 premiere of 20th Century Fox TV's 9-1-1, HOT TV Israel's Ish Hashuv Meod, and the season 9 premiere of Shameless opposite William H. Macy. He has previously worked with other Oscar winners including Frances McDormand, Christian Bale, Patricia Arquette and Donald Sutherland. In a past life he traveled widely starring in 70+ commercial and print campaigns (he lost count) for brands including Mercedes-Benz, Levi’s, Volkswagen, L'Oreal, Coca-Cola, Heineken, IKEA, Sony and Ford among many others. 

He is a magna cum laude graduate of the film program at Boston University, and an alumnus of Semester at Sea. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, daughter, a GloFish and a gonzo miniature American Eskimo dog named Starbuck, who, it should be said, is very serious about the business of being a dog.
