Matt brings over a decade of experience in multichannel marketing strategy, brand development and copywriting for clients such as Hyatt, AT&T, DirecTV, DreamWorks, Sparkling Ice, Tractor Supply Co., The Humane Society of the United States, and more. In addition, he is a frequent freelance contributor, writing for publications covering history, travel, music, culture and the arts.
Matt spent his early professional years in the non-profit sector, directing communications, grassroots initiatives, and artist advocacy at Blood:Water, an international development organization working across Africa to empower HIV-affected communities to reduce the long-term social, economic and health burdens associated with HIV/AIDS and the lack of access to safe water. During that time, he was honored to serve as a national delegate at the 2005 G8 Summit in Scotland.
Hailing from Nashville, TN, Matt graduated from Belmont University. Now a proud Seattleite, he lives with a rescue cat named Honey Badger and a pup named Harper. He is an outdoor junkie, avid reader, music-lover (and former musician with too many road stories), and a traveler with a well-worn passport and endless passion for discovery.
Relevant, experienced, and fun to work with, Matt will not only accept any writing or marketing challenge you have, but deliver on it in a way that will leave you wondering where he's been all your life.
