Marti started playing games such as Sonic the Hedgehog and Ecco the Dolphin on her father's Sega Mega Drive at a young age. Years later she received a Game Boy Pocket, a copy of Pokemon Blue and has been hooked on the Pokemon series ever since.
After finishing school she went on to study BTEC National Diploma in Games Development at college. Marti has been blogging for ONM since February 2011 after attending a pre-launch event for the Nintendo 3DS.
Still a big Pokemon fan, Marti has taken up playing Pokemon competitively. Her best result was at the the Pokemon Video Game National Championships 2012, where she managed to reach the final eight, narrowly missing out on a trip to Hawaii.
