Meet Brad Martin
Brad Martin is a native of Sun Valley, Idaho. He grew up alpine ski racing on an international level and practicing martial arts (he has his Black Belt Tae Kwon Do and well versed in numerous other styles) as well as mastering other sporting and athletic endeavors. After graduating with a degree in Philosophy from the University of Washington, Brad made the move to Los Angeles to pursue his lifetime passion of becoming a Hollywood stuntman. Through hard work and dedication, Brad quickly became one of the top stunt professionals in the business.
Since the early 2000’s Brad began focusing on stunt coordinating, action directing and action design. 2nd Unit directing is really Brad’s main focus nowadays. With the Underworld franchise, Total Recall, I, Frankenstein and most recently, Night at the Museum 3, Brad is finding a new niche in the action film genre.
