Associate Editor

Since joining Portland Monthly’s editorial team in 2010, Marty has covered books, tech start-ups, porn theater history, and population trends, and written features on the state’s UFO legacy and World Cup soccer fever in Portland. Marty commandeers the magazine’s front-of-the-book Mudroom section and backpage, and find excuses to leave the office by co-editing Portland Monthly’s travel blog, Tripster.

Burmese by birth and German by childhood, Marty arrived in Portland in 2005 by way of Los Angeles. He completed an MA in Medieval History at Portland State, where he got way into Derrida. When he’s not writing or editing, you can find him standing alongside his lovely wife in the Timbers Army, on his bike, or leveling his Titan.
