This personal and professional relationship remains solid 21 years later.

Martin has been compiling music as music supervisor and operating the sound on major fashion shows for over 15 years and his choice, advice and input has become so respected that he is often called on to assist Gavin Rajah, Craig Port, Thula Sindi to name a few.
