Building Construction Technology Supervisor
Martin’s work history includes a variety of occupations. He was trained in the Air Force as an Electrician, and worked on power lines and air field lighting. Upon release from the Air Force he took over an excavation business from his father and installed septic systems, built roads, site development, etc. After closing his Excavation business due to the bad economy, he went to college and received a degree in Electricity/Electronics and was employed by Intel as an Engineering Technician. After working in a “clean room” environment for a short stint and then presented with an opportunity to work in a cabinet shop building furniture, Martin’s interest was peaked, and it didn’t take him long to decide to change occupations and learn the various aspects of cabinet and furniture construction.
Since starting in the wood working trade, Martin progressed through the ranks and spent several years managing a large furniture manufacturing facility. Then in 1999 he started his own business building custom furniture and cabinets in Eagle Idaho, and had a successful business for 10 years. He then made another occupational change and worked at a correctional facility in Idaho as a maintenance worker, then was later employed by TVCC at Snake River Correctional facility in the BCT program, of which he is now the Supervisor.
