The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
Born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Martin's imagination was stirred at an early age, inspired by books, movies, toys and games. He quickly developed a love of drawing, writing, and technology. After seeing Pixar's first full-length film, "Toy Story", he fostered his first childhood dream of working in the entertainment industry.
Several years later, unsure of how to realize that dream, Martin entered his undergraduate studies where he majored in economics. That educational emphasis developed both his logical and inquisitive sides. On the creative side, he began learning tangible skills in multimedia production, film, and art.
Then hearing about Carnegie Mellon's Entertainment Technology Center, Martin applied and is expected to graduate in 2011 where he hopes to fulfill a life-long dream of working in the entertainment industry.
For now, he is actively pursuing opportunities in storytelling as a writer, designer, and 3D artist.
