Tommy Martin has been fortunate to work on projects with markets in the USA, India, & Germany.
He got his start as an extra, and used that opportunity to study what happens on a film set. He began taking improvisation and comedy writing classes at Second City training center in Chicago. While auditioning and experimenting with creating shorts out of improvised performance and editing, he developed an interest in creating content. Tommy has studied with Green Room Studios, Black Box Acting Studios, Sara Zalek, Fight Jam, Police Actor Training, and Second City Chicago to name a few.
