Martin has been working for the past 25 years in the development of e-commerce platforms, dynamic web development, mobile applications and video games. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and a very extensive technical background with a laser focus business driven mindset that has allowed him to level up in his career from middle management to the executive level in a very short amount of time. Fresh out of college Martin found his first company (Korpos Studios) where they developed one of the first video games in Argentina that got commercially distributed worldwide. After that great experience and a lot of knowledge acquired, he moved to Buenos Aires and joined Sabarasa Entertainment as COO to help lead and grow a studio from 12 to 50 developers and artists that shipped 10 games in 2 years for PC, Nintendo and Playstation. Following that experience, Martin joined Minor Studios as a project manager for the development of Atmosphir. He became the CEO and closed an initial funding round of $2M USD to build a team of 35 developers in the creation of Atmosphir, a video game creation tool that ended as a runner-up on TechCrunch 50 in 2008. Atmosphir was a pre-minecraft user-generated content platform that allowed anyone to create and share worlds online. 285,000 worlds were created and the game was played by 4 million people. After Minor Studios, Martin joined Making Fun, Inc. as VP of Product with the task of overseeing the success and creation of the company's games with notables such as Hidden Express and Eternium. Making Fun games were featured many times by Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Apple with combined downloads of well over 90 million.
