Martin is also an entrepreneur and creative thinker who also benefits from experience as a system designer and project manager in a wide variety of business applications.

Martin also has a very creative mind and is always good at coming up with and evaluating new ideas, particularly when they are technology related.
"Martin and I worked together closely for several years as the principal designers and implementers of a search engine, which became a significant part of the foundation of a successful company. Martin is extremely well-grounded in computer science, both academically and practically. I wouldn't have any hesitation placing Martin in charge of, or in a significant role, in a development project. In addition, Martin was a pleasure to work with. He has interests far beyond the merely technical, which made for an enjoyable work environment, and we remain friends to the present day. We only stopped working together thanks to the perversity of US immigration policies."
