Hello there

I'm a creative thinker and digital strategist with a strong background in art direction, user experience design, and team management. Working for various startups in the past has trained me to maximize efficiency by focusing on what counts. Working for a Fortune 50 corporation for over a decade forged my skills in empathetic user experience design, product innovation, and creative team leadership. I enjoy following projects through from inception to execution and optimization; always seeking to foster healthy interaction between designers, product partners, and technology teams.

There are no rules

When it comes to designing an experience, all possibilities must be considered. I enjoy experimenting with playful ways to solve problems, and researching the outcomes. We are all users of systems, interfaces and tools – and there's a lot to be learned about how humans respond to their idiosyncratic intuitions. Design is never done, I believe there is always a better way to do it.


Human by Design

As an experience design specialist, I always put my end user on a pedestal and aim to please them at every turn. I'm not afraid to challenge decisions which sacrifice the audience's needs in exchange for business efficiency. I will always champion what's right for the intended user, and will spearhead research to learn what that means if there is any uncertainty about it.


A Dedicated Partner

I am a formally trained designer, but possess a Product Manager's mindset, envisioning ideal digital experiences and crafting achievable roadmaps. I prioritize understanding technology and foster collaborative relationships with Engineers, Architects, and Developers. Despite potential clashes of overlapping disciplines, my diplomatic approach fosters ownership among stakeholders, enhancing team output and cohesion.


Process Excellence

I've collaborated with diverse teams across various projects, adapting to changing tools, platforms, and objectives while maintaining a focus on delivering top-notch experiences with minimal internal friction. With experience spanning from start-ups to Fortune 50 enterprises, I understand how to optimize team dynamics for value delivery. My approach emphasizes efficiency, minimizing distractions and leveraging effective tools and strategies to keep team resources aligned and productive.


Brian Oh Senior Director, Product Management

"Matt was an amazing partner for identity. He fully immersed himself in the concepts and problem statements and was a true thought partner. The work we do is complex and vast but Matt was always up for the challenge and pushed the group to think bigger and more deeply rooted in the customer. Matt was also technically savvy and that came of great use when we were ideating and breaking out the destination and even during short term solutions. I would happily work with Matt again any day. I cannot emphasize enough how much of an amazing thought partner Matt is and how dedicated he is to his craft. Happy to be a reference for you to anyone looking to bring on as a great leader, designer, strategist. "
