In today’s digital world, relationships are our stronghold. Here at OnePitch, we believe in storytelling, in building relationships and in transpiring those ideas into all aspects of the work that we do. It goes without saying that our leaders have crafted a company that has some pretty stellar values and we shoot to give our users the same experience as we are given here in-house.
Our leaders are pretty BA if I do say and are definitely a force to be reckoned with. They are surfers, pilots, photographers, CEOs, marketers, co-founders, creatives and so much more. Storytelling is so important in this day and age and it goes without question that we need to share our stories with you. Check out our co-founder and COO, Jered Martin, and his hobbies, passions, and his day-to-day.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Yorba Linda, CA and lived in the same house for the first 22 years of my life. I have two older sisters and two of the best parents anyone could ask for!
What is your best memory growing up?
There’s a lot of memories that come up when asked this question. As a kid, I remember looking out my bedroom window and watching the Disneyland fireworks go off every night at 9:28 pm. Another would have to be the countless days and nights spent in the street in front of my parent’s house playing street hockey. I would spend hours skating and shooting on a life-size net.
We heard you like to surf. Where is your favorite spot?
Surfing is by far my favorite hobby. I try and surf at least once per day either in the morning before work or in the afternoon after work. My apartment is 2.5 blocks from Pacific Beach and I usually surf there since it’s so convenient. On the weekends, I try and head north to Cardiff Reef. The wave that breaks there is something else!
Besides surfing, what are other passions or hobbies of yours that some people may not know? How do these tie back into your work?
I have quite a few hobbies outside of surfing – most of which involved a board underneath my feet. Soccer and hockey are two of my favorite sports and I played both growing up and I continue to play soccer on the weekends to keep active. Most of my hobbies involve the outdoors whether I’m chilling on the beach, spending the day on the slopes, or having fun on the lake. From my hobbies, I’ve learned drive, dedication, and the sense of competition are all aspects that I bring to work each day.
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Responsible, humble, charismatic.
