Marty Lagina Wiki: Early Life, Family, and Education

Marty was born in 1955 and is the younger brother – they have a sister named Martina. His parents are George Lagina and Ann Cavalieri but no further information has been made available about them. Marty enrolled at Michigan Technological University after matriculating, and obtained a degree in mechanical engineering. His education didn’t end there, as he later btained a law degree, and was admitted to the Michigan State Bar.

Career Beginnings

Marty launched his career in the late ‘70s when he got a job as a petroleum engineer at the Amoco Production Company. Just three years later he had learned enough and had enough money in his bank account to start his own company, Terra Energy Limited, which focused on the development of resources for shale gas in the state of Michigan. Gradually, his company became more involved in the shale gas market, eventually starting its own distribution network, and becoming the largest operator in the line of shale gas. He later sold his company for $58 million to CMS, which he used for further investments.

Vineyard Business

Marty then looked for another investment, and launched Mari Vineyards in Michigan. It turned out to be a smart investment, since the vineyard is still producing a high-class red wine. However, busy with other projects, Marty got his son involved in the vineyard business, which enabled Marty to focus on other things that interested him, including Oak Island.

The Curse of Oak Island

Fascinated by the Oak Island from an early age and the mysteries that this small island in Mahone Bay apparently had, Marty wanted to take over the island; he teamed up with his brother Rick to obtain a controlling interest in Oak Island Tours, which apparently owns most of the island. They were successful in their efforts, and after a while Marty and Rick were approached by Prometheus Entertainment, which soon resulted in the reality TV show “The Curse of Oak Island”, which premiered in Canada on the 5th January 2014, and since then over 60 episodes have been aired, showcasing the efforts of the two brothers to bring the mysteries of the Oak Island closer to the public. Marty has become popular since the launch of the series, which only increased his wealth.

Encouraged by the success of the original series, Marty started the spin-off series “The Curse of Oak Island: Drilling Down”, launched in 2016. He has started another project, a search for  Civil War gold apparently lost in Michigan, with the help of Robert Clotworthy and Kevin Dykstra. The show, “The Curse of Civil War Gold”, premiered on the 6th March 2018, and at the time of writing, six episodes have been aired. Their search is based on a deathbed confession of a lighthouse keeper from the 1890s.
