Associate, Global Sales and Institutional Partnerships
Hi! I’m Martin, a Boston-born 2015 graduate of the University of St Andrews with a Joint Honors degree in Economics and International Relations. I’ve been interested in international development since my early days at college and this has been a unique chance to grow in a field I enjoy with an excellent team. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to Kenya and across Europe, including one rather hectic hitch-hiking trip from Edinburgh to Prague. My most listened-to song in 2016 was ‘Get Away’ by The Internet according to Spotify, my favorite TV-show star-ship captain is Captain Reynolds from Firefly and I live in Brooklyn with 3 roommates and a cat named Iris.
What excites you the most about working for Visionspring?
I enjoy getting to meet and work with people in an exciting, dynamic sector that impacts individuals’ lives for the better, and working with a team that’s able to adapt to new challenges!
What’s your first memory of wearing glasses?
While at a Red Sox game in middle school I realized I couldn’t read the scoreboard while everyone else could! My dad brought me into get my eyes checked soon after.
