I first met Martin Walker through the EngineerZone (EZ) Blog program. He started writing on EZ about LTspice in March. It was through him that I understood what is LTspice and its value which he demonstrates in his blog post here.
Martin is a lead Engineer in Product Marketing in the Converters Group. I sat down in a get-to-know-you session with him to get an inside look at who he is. Asking him several targeted questions in a video interview helped to shed light on who is behind LTspice Corner blogs and much more.

“It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question.” – Eugene Ionesco

Martin shares a lot about his passions, hobbies, and interests. "Do you think you know him?" Think again. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
