Hi.

 

I'm Matt. I enjoy helping brands and clients solve problems. Big problems, little problems, daily problems, occasionally reoccurring problems - I'm here for them all. I've been fortunate enough to have my work recognized by the Cannes Lions, One Show, D&AD, Clio Awards, National Addy's, Communication Arts, Adweek, Advertising Age, and others. I have a BFA in Visual Communication from Kansas State University and attended Miami Ad School where I studied art direction. I've been an instructor at Miami Ad School and served as a mentor for the Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota.
