Martin Julio Sinlao was born and raised in Sacramento, California. His mother is from Pampanga and his dad is from Pangasinan. Martin spent nine years as a part of the Sinag-tala Theater and Performing Arts Association. There, he got experience telling stories through the Filipino-American lens and got to taste various aspects of traditional and modern forms of dance. While he has trained in Jazz, Ballet, and modern, he always has a sweet spot for traditional Filipino folk dance. What he hopes to do is to allow us all to find ourselves through movement. He is currently stationed at Schofield Barracks where he works as a radiology specialist.
