Hello. I’m Martin, professional accountant and IT administrator. My specialty is T.A.C.T. – Troubleshooting, Analysis, Cleanup and Turnaround of troubled or struggling small businesses and business units. Current studies toward a degree in business administration bolster my 20+ years in public and charter education, information technology, communication systems, and for-profit and nonprofit accounting. In my personal time, I enjoy helping small businesses and non-profit organizations establish sound business practices and information systems that help them grow. My pet projects include helping young entrepreneurs and artists find their voices, advocating for education and human services causes, and contributing toward community and economic development.
Since first volunteering for a local middle school during my senior year, I’ve been involved in educating and mentoring young people toward their full potential and goals. Through speaking engagements, mentor opportunities, and career day presentations, I’ve bridged my professional background in accounting and IT to academic and career goals of students throughout Philadelphia.
Earning my degree in business administration has been a natural extension of this experience, bringing me that much closer to my goal of building sustainable communities through education and economic development opportunities.
