Where I'm From
Long Island, NY
SVA (New York), Full Sail University
Matthew studied art and design formally, but the process of designing web experiences for users captured his attention. Rather than work in the design industry after graduation, Matthew was offered a teaching position that helped him discover his strengths as a mentor, coach and developing creative talent. Known for transforming the personal and professional lives of his students, Matthew was Interactive Usability Design Educator for 9 years without a formal degree in education. He has lectured on various design related topics and was a volunteer student mentor to students approaching graduation.
Real Life Education + Real Life Experience
Matthew took the unconventional route by receiving his “real life MBA degree” as a design professor by day and entrepreneur on nights and weekends. He was graced to gain his business and design experience working on projects for Florida State Parks and Recreation, UNUM Group, Florida Hospital, Central Florida Commission on Homelessness, The Dept. of Homeland Security, The Walton Family Foundation, and Frontline Solutions. Having gained the majority of his experience working with social advocacy organizations, government organizations, lawyers, insurance companies, and real estate professionals, Matthew has transformed into a creative professional that can communicate to business leaders that need design strategies to solve their business challenges.
