Martin grew up in Monrovia, CA living in the same home until he graduated from high school. He attended Azusa Pacific University on an athletic scholarship playing baseball for the Cougars.

After college, Martin moved to Glendora, married and raised three children. He and his wife have since called the South Bay home, enjoying the last 7 years living close to work. Martin's experience with his now adult age children provides reassurance in guiding his three step-children. Needless to say he has a full house.

Prior to Green Hills, Martin was in the telecommunications industry for 20+ years in both the finance and marketing arena. He later then became the CEO of a hardware/software firm supplying directly to telephone companies.

Martin has been with Green Hills for 7 years as an Advanced Planning Advisor. He's coined the phrase "It is your plan, your wishes, your way". His own experience had such an impact on him that he felt there was no better opportunity to help others then by guiding them in making crucial decisions. He's remains compelled that planning in advance is the responsible thing to do thus eliminating the financial and emotional burden that may otherwise be left for loved ones.

After losing his mother in 2000, Martin stopped his career so he could assist his aging father. It was then he realized the difficulty in making final arrangements for a parent. His father passed in 2008 and today Martin still questions himself if the decisions he made were really what his father wanted.

He describes the noticeable sense of accomplishment by a family once they have finalized their plans as his biggest motivation.

Martin intends to one day take an extended adventure and travel the backbone of America. He dreams of traversing the deserts to the mountains on a West-East coast route alongside his children.
