In this episode, I'm joined by my friend, Adam McArthur, who is a martial artist, actor, and entrepreneur. He's the voice of Marco Diaz on Star vs. the Forces of Evil on Disney, and has been in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, The Adventures of Puss in Boots, Final Fantasy, Far Cry, and S.A.L.E.M, and he's even the announcer voice on Disney XD. What strikes me in this conversation is the sense of perserverance, grit, and deliberate simplicity with which Adam approaches the industry; how he was able to internalize lessons from the martial arts and reframe or recontextualize them in the entertainment industry, his touching student-teacher relationship with his martial arts teacher, Sifu John Yee, his many audition stories, counteracting the need for perfectionism, and the total and complete ownership he demands from himself in the never-ending pursuit that is...the journey. It was a pleasure to have Adam on, and I hope that you enjoy this conversation as much as I did. To learn more about Adam or keep up with his work you can follow him on any social account @ninjamac.
