Growing up in the ‘90s, Matt couldn’t get enough MTV. He had no idea that his first job out of college would send him to New York City to work in those same offices. Working in a big city for a big network led to many great experiences that helped shape his life. Matt has produced/edited videos for 17 years. It allows him to have fun earning a living, meet his heroes, and maintain a flexible schedule that allows him to spend time with his family. Matt loves sports and entertainment, so going to baseball games and movies are near the top of his list of favorite things. He also enjoys bowling and golf, and he tries to take a long walk every day. It’s a great way to clear the mind and spend time with the family and dogs. When Matt was growing up, it pained him to see people feeling left out. So, he always tried to be as inclusive as possible. Sometimes that meant cramming 15 or more friends into his parents’ basement to hang out. His parents never protested. They liked his friends and enjoyed knowing they were having fun in a safe environment. Matt tries to carry that kindness and inclusive spirit everywhere he goes, and he hopes to provide a safe space for his kids and all of their friends someday.
