I’m excited to meet you! My name is Martin but my friends call me Marty, I will be moving to Stebbins Alaska this summer to teach along with my fiancé Angelica Timbush. We are moving all the way from central Minnesota after learning of the opportunities in Alaska over the past year, and are incredibly excited. I have a background in art and have worked as a graphic designer, caricature artist, illustrator, visual artist, camp guide, and of course, a teacher. I graduated from Saint Cloud State University in Minnesota with a BFA in 2d studio art and a minor in graphic design in 2015. After finishing my undergrad degree, I went back to school to attain my k-12 teaching license. Other than my history with college I have done a lot of volunteer work with Big Brothers Big Sisters and with Boy Scouts of America where I volunteered until I received my Eagle rank in 2010.
My other interests include science fiction, film & television, fishing, reading, camping and hiking, comics, photography, drawing & painting, video and card games, as well as playing music. I have many hobbies and am pumped to learn more about others working and living in the area. I am really excited to get into the community and am humbled by this amazing opportunity. I can’t wait to learn more about the district. Hope to meet you soon.
