Marty Skovlund, Jr. is an author, freelance writer, award winning entrepreneur, award winning independent filmmaker, and television personality.

He was born and raised in Huron, South Dakota. He grew up the oldest of five, spending his time as an avid outdoorsman and reader. After high school he immediately enlisted in the U.S. Army. His first assignment was to the 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment.

While at 1/75, he served in a variety of roles and deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan a total of five times. After his fifth deployment, he volunteered for recruiting duty and was assigned to the Syracuse Recruiting Battalion as a recruiting NCO.

Marty left his company in the fall of 2015, which had grown to include six separate sub-brands, to travel the country with his family. He now focuses on his newfound interests in writing and filmmaking, while serving on the board of advisors for The Darby Project.

He is happily married to his beautiful wife, and is father to an incredible little girl.
