Associate Project Manager
While pursuing his Masters of Sustainability Solutions at ASU, Martin has worked with local municipalities on various urban sustainability projects, such as Tempe’s Master Urban Forestry program, Maricopa County Air Quality Department’s Commit to One Day campaign, and the City of Phoenix’s Urban Tree Planting initiatives. Martin’s urban sustainability studies at ASU transformed into a passion for the built environment. He is now working on his final ASU capstone project remotely in Los Angeles while also interning full-time at Verdical Group (VG), where his USGBC-focused project meshes well with VG’s LEED consulting work.
