My room in the ArtHouse

He provides primary direction on the firm’s approach while overseeing the management of project funds and billing.

Outside the house
Marty is a Colorado native whose passion for art and design is exceeded only by his passion for his family. These loves of his life are followed closely by a love of the Colorado mountains, the perfect bicycle, a deep conversation with interesting people, drawing exceedingly wonderful “doodles” in his ongoing collection of daily notebooks, and a robust glass of red wine. (Not always in that order.)
