I'm Matt.

Hi.

Creative director, art director, designer, and an all-around good guy.

About Me

I grew up in the cookie-cutter sprawl of suburbia. My father, a chemist, instilled a sort of mechanical and technological curiosity that has stuck with me to this day. My mother, an artist, imparted a love of visual creation. And my older sister gave me her rad tape collection.

I attended a fine arts college, reveling in the opportunity to create all forms of art – from sculpture and ceramics to printmaking and experimental film. Eventually, I focused on two majors: graphic design and photography, falling one credit shy of an art history minor.

Upon graduating, I began my career in advertising. Now, with over 15 years of experience in traditional, non-traditional and digital advertising, I have worked on some of the most prestigious global brands and been fortunate enough to win most of the major awards in the business.
