The earliest years of Martys life were spent in Salt Lake City, Utah until, at the age of 14, he and his family moved to Arvada, Colorado. A product of Pomona High School, Marty continued his studies at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado. While in college, Martys athletic pursuits quickly took a back seat to his newly discovered passion for acting. He furthered his theater studies at Metro State College and started performing in a variety of theatrical settings throughout the Denver/Boulder area. Martys love of acting took him to Los Angeles in 1996 where he studied with Ivana Chubbock and Christina Pickles and was featured on several television series and in a multitude of independent films. Marty busted out in the bizarro comedy, God Made Man, where he played Lovester the psychotic but affable donut delivery man for which he received the Audience Award for Best Performance at the 2000 MicroCineFest in Baltimore, Maryland. Appearances in everything from NYPD Blue and Passions to the film noire, Suspects in the Murder of Miss May further illustrate Martys versatility in front of the camera. When Marty is not acting, he writes. His writing credits include Four Corners (play - 2001 - Hudson Theater in Los Angeles) Durango (TV pilot) and For Bens Sake (screenplay). Marty served as the Managing Director of his own production company, Prospector Productions, through which he produced a handful of plays, short films, and one documentary. A singer, songwriter and guitar player, Marty scored most of his own music in the last short film he produced, Actual Size. In his most recent feature film, The Zodiac (starring opposite Philip Baker Hall, Justin Chambers, Rory Culkin and Robin Tunney), Marty played the elusive Zodiac Killer.
