O'Donnell ended up joining the Bungie staff only ten days before the studio was bought by Microsoft, and has been the audio director for all Bungie projects since. O'Donnell's score to the Halo trilogy has been called iconic, earning him several awards, and the commercial soundtrack release of the music to Halo 2 became the best-selling video game soundtrack of all time in the United States. His most recently released work is the music for Halo: Reach, released digitally on September 14, 2010 and disc on September 28, 2010. O'Donnell has been married for more than 30 years to his wife, Marcie, and has two married daughters, Alison and Christine. His children were part of a singing choir for the Flintstones Chewable Vitamins commercials. His father did voice work for Myth as the "Surly Dwarf". He interacts with his fans on his official fan group on Bungie.net, dubbed "The Marty Army". O'Donnell is a self-described political conservative, and his coworkers at Bungie described him as the most right-leaning employee at the company.
Despite his extensive work with Bungie, O'Donnell remains co-owner and president of TotalAudio, although the company has not done any non-Halo work since 2001. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
