Marty House from "Diamond Divers" stars in the Spike TV reality docu-series.

Born and raised in Forks, Washington, Marty House has always known he was going to become a commercial diver.

Growing up, House was shy kid up until he joined his high school football team, after which he became known for his boisterous voice and high energy. As a child, he watched a fascinating documentary on commercial diving, deciding right then and there he wanted to be a commercial diver. In order to start saving up for dive school, House began working in a restaurant while he was still in high school. After graduating from Forks High School, class of '02, he began logging and continued this for nearly five years. During this stint, he lived briefly in Bellingham, Washington, where he began working a higher paying job in hazardous tree removal. After several years of saving up, House finally reached his goal and enrolled himself in a Seattle, Washington, dive school, earning his certification in commercial diving and rescue diving. It was a journey that took him "from the top of the trees to the bottom of the seas."  

From there, House moved to Houston, Texas, where more work in his field is located. His first year was a difficult one, as jobs were hard to come by. During this time, he worked inland, mostly on dams, marinas and lakes, fixing sailboats. Soon after, he landed a steady job working in the oil field offshore, where he spent 10 consecutive months at sea and excelled quickly.

House serves as one of the two principle divers on this South African adventure, the other being his best friend Sammy, whom he met in dive school. He is responsible for ensuring the underwater pumps are working properly at the bottom of the ocean and scouting diamond hot spots. He and Sammy are the young, fun, troublemakers of the crew, often rebelling against Captain John's authority. House hopes to find diamonds so he can use the money to travel and provide for his mother, who is a single parent.

House currently lives in Houston, Texas, and enjoys hiking, hunting, fishing, sky diving, scuba diving, snowboarding, wake boarding and any other extreme sport in his spare time.
