howdy.

Born and raised in small-town Kansas, I flung myself to Philadelphia for college, and finally stuck the landing in NYC.

In 2016, after nearly 12 years in the Big Apple, my partner and I moved west and are being quickly Californian’ized: bring on the yoga, small-batch breweries, and extemporaneous costume parties.

I’ve got 15+ years of Product Management experience building software for consumer products. My incredible coworkers seem to have very nice things to say about me.

“Matt is highly competent and has a unique ability to understand and be able to speak the language of business needs, technology, and design — more than most product managers I’ve worked with.

Matt has a hands-on and personable approach. He does the hard work of communicating directly with each person on the team individually rather than conducting many meetings and stand-ups.

Yet it’s apparent that he trusts us to be great at our respective roles and to complete our work accurately and on time.

I think Matt makes us all better at what we do.”
