Marti grew up on a small farm in Maryland and first fell in love with the musical theatre after seeing a local production of Annie. As a kid he would mix his love of Broadway and the royal family to create stories and put on shows for his family.
At the age of 17, he moved to NYC and appeared in the Off-Broadway-Drama Desk nominated show “Twist,” which threw him into the drag comedy scene. His career as a drag artist has taken him all over the world. He has played sold out shows at 54 Below and through his talk show “Stage Fright,” he has interviewed hundreds of Broadway stars, sharing the stage at his shows with over 20 Tony Award winners and nominees.
Through his drag persona Marti has promoted awareness for many LGBT charities including The Ali Forney Center, GMHC, The Hetrick Martin Institute, and Bailey House. He is currently co-producing and starring in “Shade: Queens of NYC” on Fusion and serving as President of the Hells Kitchen Democrats.
