My name is Marshall Morris, and I’m the Founder of Madness Media. There isn’t much about my background that separates me from most of the readers and listeners of Madness Media. I’ve worked over the past 5 years to figure out what makes me catch fire, and this site is a product of that.

Armed with a camera he can spark emotion in others that spreads like wildfire. He has a yearn for adventure and makes the meanest cup of coffee. He brings energy and creativity home to the team.
