Martin was adopted at the age of eight from Sofia, Bulgaria and arrived in Federal Way in 1992. His parents, both educators, instilled in him the importance of putting others before yourself and giving back to your community.
Martin attended Saint Theresa’s Catholic Church, where he was an Altar Server and now attends Saint Vincent DePaul Parish. He attended Federal Way public school before enrolling in Saint Martin’s University, where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in Political Science.
Following his college graduation, Martin returned to Federal Way and continued his community service as a Federal Way Parks and Recreation Commissioner since 2007. In addition, he served in the Federal Way Public Schools AmeriCorps program from 2009 to 2011, where he tutored, led after-school programs, and helped at-risk students towards the goal of attending college.
Martin is a very proud uncle to a three-year-old nephew, Milo, and a niece, Rowan. He wants to make Federal Way a place where dreams can come true for their generation, just as it was for a child from Bulgaria years ago.
Martin is married to Sarah (August 2016) and is currently working on his master degree in school guidance counseling through City University of Seattle.
