Martin was born and raised in Essex but he now lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and their three cats. He loves horror movies but his all-time favourite is actually the 1980 classic Scarface. He also adores his food, so if you ever need a restaurant recommendation, Martin is your guy.
Martin loves to travel the world and has ventured to over 50 countries and counting! He follows his beloved West Ham United over land and sea too, which isn’t always a pleasant experience domestically. He did enjoy a few seconds on screen in an FA Cup Budweiser advert for West Ham back in 2012, which is his claim to fame.
Here’s a fun fact for you. Martin was a semi-professional footballer at 18 with Concord Rangers. He decided to give that up and dedicate his life to the world of work, which he left after just two years to go to University. What was he thinking?! He could’ve been on £100k a week plying his trade in the Premier League but now we’ll never know.
