Senior Travel Consultant
Marty was born and raised in Elmhurst, IL before relocating to Seattle, WA and onward to Argentina and Brazil. As a student of urban geography, he was captivated by the liveliness, hospitality and diversity of South American cities while studying abroad in Buenos Aires and traveling across the continent. This exposure, combined with his passion for guiding and motivating others, inspired him to help others explore South America's landscapes and cultures at SouthAmerica.travel. After two years in the Pacific Northwest, Marty has been living between Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro where he is continually improving his Portuñol, taking photos of vintage cars, and diving into the rich local music scenes.
