Recently, we had the pleasure of interviewing “Male Model of The Year” Martin Grassberger. We learned that Martin was born in 1979 and raised in a small Ski Resort in the Austrian Alps called, Aflenz-Kurort. Martin started out with a career in business after graduating with a degree in Hotel Management in Vienna, Austria, but he soon discovered other, more compelling opportunities.
Martin’s true desire was to move to the states, and in February 2000 he was given the opportunity to move to the United States and manage catering events and restaurants throughout Florida. He soon realized that this was not his passion. Within a very short period of time he was discovered by Swan Elliott, Owner of Focus International Model and Talent Agency. The opportunity to build an entertainment career was in his mind already as a young teenager back in Austria. He eventually signed a contract with the agency that lead him to several acting roles in movies Jarhead and Everlife and Television Shows Entourage and Curb Your Enthusiasm. By February 2004 he was also appearing in fashion shows, commercials and print jobs for Eddie Bauer, Hugo Boss & Calvin Klein to name a few between Los Angeles, Florida, Singapore and Hawaii.
Martin also began pursuing his passion for fitness and nutrition, and, when not working, he can be found in gyms between Hawaii and Los Angeles. In 2006 Martin decided to became a certified personal trainer in Santa Monica, California and started coaching clients. Improving other’s quality of life on a daily base is a rewarding experience for Martin and he intends to share this passion and knowledge for the rest of his life.
By August of 2011, Martin teamed up with his agent Swan Bowden to create “808 On Stage,” an entertainment production that employs models, actors and performers. “Tribal Motion” was the first show with 42 performers. It was a night to remember in a sold-out event in Kailua Kona, Hawaii that featured Cirque Du Soleil performers, triable drummers and dancers, models and musicians.
Martin currently lives between Los Angeles and Hawaii and his new passion is for Christian Movies. He intends to spend more time in Los Angeles again to make the proper connections that will lead him to the “Big Screen”. He always says, “With God everything is possible. Put Him first in everything and enjoy what happens”
BELLA PETITE HOUR
Podcast Now Playing: Martin’s interview on the Bella Petite Hour (with host Ann Lauren) was engaging and inspiring. We found him to be of a pure heart with good intentions in an industry fraught with overzealous males looking to ride the wave of fame and pick up as many women as they can. Martin, on the other hand, wants to honor the wedding vows he recently made this February to his new wife Mary (while maintaining a Hollywood lifestyle, he certainly has his work cut out for him). As we always say, men prefer petites and this 6’0″ manzon confirms his wife is a beautiful 5’4″ petite. Bravo!
