HIDEOUT MOUNTAIN - MAY 24 2020 1.jpg


My name is Orlondo Avion.

I was born Orlando Avion Martinez in Sterling, Colorado into a military family.  Before I knew it, I was traveling the world visiting places like Vicenza, Italy; Fort Rucker, Alabama; Fort Wainwright, Alaska; and Fort Bliss Texas.  My father was a purple-heart decorated, helicopter pilot with the Army and we often returned to Colorado Springs. I attended S.A. Wilson Elementary School, Sproul Junior High School and am a proud graduate of Widefield High School. Go Gladiators!

I attended the Air Force Academy, CU Boulder; ultimately graduating from UCCS with an engineering degree.  While going to UCCS during the day, I was working as a dance instructor at night. I used the name Orlondo Avion as my stage name in dance competitions, eventually making the name permanent. Throughout my engineering career, I’ve been fortunate to enough to stay in Colorado and, in particular, Colorado Springs. The Pikes Peak region is where I plan to live out my life.
