Hey, I’m Marty.

In a previous life, I made pins, flyers, banners, posters, and cartoons for a variety of small nonprofits and businesses around NYC, such as Community Health Action of Staten Island and Everything Goes Book Cafe. I also ghostwrote numerous short articles for sites such as Amazon and AskJeeves.

I’m now a proud graduate of Coalition for Queens, a 10-month long tech fellowship that taught me the ins and outs of iOS and Swift.

In early 2018, I received a Grow With Google scholarship, to learn Android development via Udacity. However, my studies became interupted in the best way, when I took an offer to move to Seattle and join the Microsoft LEAP program.

I like old-school video games, zoology, monsters, and digging through whatever Wikihole I’ve currently tumbled into.
