About Martin

Musings by Martin is a personal blog penned by Martin Hawrysko, a mid-30s millennial from Chicago’s southwest suburbs. He uses this space to comment on various interests, with an emphasis towards broadcasting, journalism, technology, graphic design, and marketing – in addition to anything else happening from around the world or in life.

From childhood, Martin obsessed over radio and television broadcasting while also having an added eye for critiquing logos. The mainstreaming of the Internet in the late 1990s coinciding with his teenage years sparked an interest in the emerging tech industry and the new means to connect, consume, and communicate. By the early 2000s, he was leisurely immersed with writing, web design, and computer graphics. He graduated in 2008 with his Bachelor of Arts in graphic design and print journalism and today makes his living as a web designer and digital marketer.

Martin is married, advocates science and evidence-based thinking, and has an affinity for the state of Wisconsin, which provides a likely explanation for his Green Bay Packers fandom. He enjoys reading fictional detective mysteries and various non-fiction, cycling, traveling, and watching re-runs of “The Crown.” He recently became in favor of using the Oxford comma after 20 plus years of opposing it.
