While in New York, he came across Bachata and was immediately drawn to the dance. Following this trip he began taking lessons in both Cuban Salsa, LA On1 and then moved on to Bachata & Kizomba when living in Madrid and in Paris.
Martin is one of the founding partners of the successful Salsa Events Company, Latin Caliente and Bachata-Licious. He is a well known Salsa Dj in the Northwest alongside DJ Royce. He has also sought to share his passion and Weekly Bachata classes since 2014. Martin is an International Dj and Teacher.
