For more than 15 years, Matt has put his BA in Communication and Theater and MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts and Media to work sharing non-profit and for-profit brand stories with audiences around the world.

He has worked in commercial and film production with clients including Levis, MTV/Nickelodeon and National Geographic Films. He helped create dynamic brand experiences for Mars, L’Oreal and Pernod Ricard. All the while, Matt’s passion for making an impact grew - supporting non-profit media projects in India and producing performance artists in Chicago.

In 2010, Matt’s love for visual storytelling and brand building led him to the rapidly-growing global nonprofit World Bicycle Relief. Matt currently serves as Sr. Creative Director for WBR where he has produced more than 20 international, multimedia fundraising campaigns and 80+ short films sharing the stories of students, health workers and entrepreneurs in Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
