Lew Marklin Mash

Lewis Marklin Mash, was born in Los Alamitos, California, to Lewis Edward Mash, a baker (Dolly Madison Bakery, Glendale, CA) and Kathe Leigh Mash (Cuthbert) an internationally known porcelain artist. Mash grew up in Cerritos, CA, but spent most of his early life in Pismo Beach and Santa Barbara, CA, where he eventually went to school at SBCC and UCSB. Mash, started his career in music, as a rap artist, at the age of 10. Mash spent 15 years in the music business as a signed artist and started a record company, Project Records, in 1990. Marklin, as most know him, decided to learn television in college, interned at ABC News and the Los Angeles Dodgers, but not before working for three years at Fox Family Entertainment, as a receptionist, where he learned the basic ins and outs of the industry. Marklin, was not afraid to jump in to the business and produced his own show, ADHDtv in 2007, gave up his job at ABC and funded the entire venture with his savings. Before going broke, he managed to produce 50 episodes that aired on cable across the US, and wielded incredible ratings, that beat out many network produced shows, ever etching his reputation, in the industry, as a nuts and bolts producer that can take nothing and turn it into something. Marklin, has now produced on talk shows, a kids game show, Reality Shows, Sports Shows and most recently a religious broadcast and specializes in family oriented programming. Marklin heads up a media ministry in his free time, and insists that it is important to gather like minded media professionals together, to remind each other, that there is strength in numbers, and that Hollywood must recognize that there are family factions in this industry who have a powerful and enabled voice to keep this industry in check.
