Marty graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point and was commissioned as a U.S. Army Infantry Officer. After 9/11, he transitioned into and continues to serve as a U.S. Army Chaplain in the National Guard.

Buckle underwrites auto insurance for rideshare, delivery, and Transportation Network Company (TNC) drivers, closing the gap conventional insurance policies create for gig workers. Buckle uses rideshare and delivery data to price insurance policies, rather than traditional measures such as a credit score, which penalizes gig workers for having poor or no credit.
