Marc Preston

Film/Voiceover Actor & Coach | Podcast Host | Epic Proud Father

Marc Preston has spent the last thirty years working as a professional on-camera and voiceover actor. He’s voiced countless projects on his journey, from national advertising campaigns, to network promos and everything in between. Beyond his work on the mic, he’s spent a fair amount of time on-camera. From the time he was seven years old, he’s appeared in a variety of film and television projects.

Marc also spent two decades as a successful major market radio personality, as well as hosted his own nationally syndicated shows on the ABC Radio Networks. He has interviewed hundreds of actors, creators, politicians, influencers and a host of intriguing guests in his time as a radio host.

For the past two decades, Marc has taken this bank of experience and shared it with hundreds of voiceover students from around the world. As a voiceover coach and consultant, he’s worked with a variety of talented performers. He’s been sought out by numerous films and television actors, and been instrumental in helping them to effectively bridge their acting skillset to voiceover.

Marc embraces every opportunity to “pay it forward” and be of service to talent at every level of experience. He founded one of the largest social media portals in the world for voiceover professionals. “The VoiceOver Community” (and Facebook group of the same name) provides a daily resource for tens of thousands of talent to connect, collaborate, learn and enjoy a sense of community with fellow voiceover professionals.

In addition to his own efforts, Marc has also been honored with the opportunity to collaborate with the Society of Voice Arts and Sciences as a Juror for the Voice Arts Awards. He is also a regular speaker at the annual That’s Voiceover conference in Los Angeles. As an influencer in the world of professional voiceover, Marc is regularly asked to be a guest on various podcasts and industry publications.

Marc believes in the imperative of being a “working student.” Learning and evolving as a professional talent is essential. Equally important to Marc, is the opportunity to mentor, contribute and help inspire others. It’s this passion that motivates him to provide a venue for intriguing and informative conversations with guests who are at the top of their creative and professional game.

The founding principle of Story & Craft is to craft weekly shows that appeal to industry professionals, as well as those looking for the kind of entertainment and inspiration that feeds curiosity and facilitates personal growth. Marc believes in the Zen of talking story…exploring what we have in common, and having conversations that inspire.
