Inspired to live in a world where everyone thrives, Martin embarked on a journey of discovery from a young age. He intentionally forewent a career on Wall Street in order to focus on social entrepreneurship as a means to create social change. Over the last decade, he founded and has actively participated in the founding of several companies that have had a positive impact on society. Over time, however, he realized that the economy influenced human well-being on a far greater scale than any social enterprise ever could, and this led him on a quest to discover a new economic paradigm that would allow for a greater unfolding of human potential. Over a period of several years, he researched and wrote a manifesto on this new economic paradigm, which will be published by North Atlantic Books and distributed by Random House in the spring of 2015.

Martin is a deeply introspective thinker. His work ethic, as well as his passion for learning and excelling in new areas, is at a level most of us only dream about. Beyond his very compassionate nature for all things on this planet, he also works tirelessly to inform others on ways humanity might create a brighter and healthier place for us all to live.

Martin’s most illuminated quality is that he is a seeker of truth. His truth is typically found through the details of life. It is through the details that he makes decisions from a higher perspective.
