Martin’s interest in juggling started during his youth and led him towards the circus arts. He trained as a hand-to-hand porter, acrobat and trampolinist, trying as many disciplines as possible and was considering training at the National Circus School when in 2002 he met Andy de Groat, for whom he became an assistant  and performer for more than twenty projects. He then joined the Collectif Petit Travers as a stage manager, assistant, performer, and co-author of Dans les plis du paysage, while continuing choreographic creation projects for his own company Percept.
