Winston A. Marshall is an actor, comedian, on-air personality and self proclaimed “Swaggy Blerd” (Black Nerd). He is a proud native Texan of partial West Indian descent, who lives and breathes entertainment.
Winston has always loved doing impressions and voices, mimicking anyone he heard. Early on he turned this passion into a job working with Radio Disney as a Voice Over artist from 5th grade until high school.
