Marttell was born and raised in San Diego, California, where he grew up playing soccer. He and his wife, Sandra, have two elementary-age boys and two German Shepherd Dogs. As a family, they enjoy pizza & movie nights, watching soccer and football games, training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and going on short road trips to explore Northern California's sites. Marttell also loves books, plain vanilla ice cream, and pour-over coffee. You can usually catch him at Black Oak Coffee Roasters, his favorite coffee shop in town!
