Marty is a native of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where he developed a great love of natural beauty.  He earned his Bachelor of Arts with an honours certificate in Political Science and Philosophy at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada in 1990.  After working in nonprofit development for several years, he pursued graduate studies at Indiana University, earning his Masters of Arts in 2004, and Ph.D. in 2011, both in Philanthropy and Philosophy.  
 
Marty has dedicated his professional and academic career to better understanding philanthropy and civil society in both theory and practice.

He is particularly interested in those aspects of philanthropy pertaining to ancient Greek philosophy and the Promethean myth.
