Marty began acting at age 13, and later worked for over 25 years as a writer, photographer, graphic designer, editor, journalist, and novelist. He is the author of four books, “By A Thread,” “Losing Addison,” (adapted as a feature film, which he directed), and “Senseless Confidential” (writing as Martin Bannon). He also co-authored “The Falls” with writer-director Jon Garcia. As of May 2018, the novel is the #1 Bestseller on Amazon’s Contemporary Christian Fiction list.
In 2013 Marty returned to acting after a long absence, and became a screenwriter and filmmaker as well. He is the founder of FauxMeme Productions in Portland, Oregon, where he writes, produces, and directs. His first love is acting, however, and he has appeared in numerous film, television, industrial, and commercial productions.
