My name is Marissa Alexandria Martinez. I go by Marti, Marti Silent, M. A. Silent, MartiButt, MartiFarti, Martizzle Snizzle, and The Clumsy Ninja, Silent Butt Deadly. I’m an 18 year old student videographer/filmmaker, digital artist, silly writer, experimental cosplayer and rad gaming enthusiast. My biggest achievements consist of doing the film thing and causing people to shed furious tears at various film festivals, letting my overactive optimism take the wheel from time to time, and managing to get through two whole semester of college at my local university without peeing my pants. I am most compatible with happy convention nerds and scary theatre kids.|
I live in the salad bowl of the nation where agriculture is at its finest, the weather can’t make up its mind, the air is super mega clean, and John Steinbeck’s home is now a restaurant with weird food, but hey, not one bookstore can seem to stay open long enough for anyone to know it was ever there. Population: Everyone hates it here but can never leave.
I’m inspired by the inner mechanisms of my mind called overly vivid dreams and imagination and I’ve set myself on the path to becoming a character designer, concept artist, film director, screenwriter, musician, and, nerves don’t fail me now, some sort of entertainer, and etc. All in hopes of making some sort of difference in this wee world.
But right now, I’m a first generation Cinematic Arts & Technology Major at my local university just trying to get through each and every day with a purposeful smile on my face, all while living with my ever-improving mediocrity called art. Godspeed, fellow sky dweller.
