Martin spent 4 years as a firefighter with Kent Fire Brigade and then 13 years with Kent Police, initially as a Scenes of Crime Officer, and later as a Senior Crime Scene Investigator. He has been involved in criminal investigations of all types from domestic burglaries to multiple murders. He obtained his degree in 2000, before joining Burgoynes in 2004.

Martin specialises in the investigation of fires and explosions. These incidents have ranged from small domestic cases to major incidents and multiple fatalities. In addition, Martin has also acquired a body of knowledge and experience in the field of non-destructive methods of entry, sometimes loosely referred to as ‘lock-picking’. This, together with Martin’s CSI experience has allowed him to assist clients with a range of questions relating to locks and physical security.

Martin has lectured to students on Crime Scene Investigation courses both in Kent and at the former National Training Centre (Centrex) in Durham. More recently, he has lectured to students studying Forensic Science courses at Christchurch University, Canterbury.
