Do you have a favorite hobby? 

I don't know if I have a number one favorite. I enjoy hiking and being outdoors. I also enjoy going to Mariners and Seahawks games. After being on the waitlist for five years, my wife and I received Seahawks season tickets. Last year was the first year!

Tell us a little about your family.

I met my wife in High School. We have now been married 6.5 years. We have one dog; a rescue from PAWS. She turns seven this month.

What are you looking forward to most in your new position? 

One of my favorite parts of working in HR is the fact that I get to work across all the areas of the college - instruction, student services and administrative services. Getting to meet and get to know everyone is what I am looking forward to most.

Thank you, Marty, for taking the time to introduce yourself, and congratulations on your new position! 

You can find Marty at Cascadia College soon.
