Howdy. I’m Matt, midwestern born and educated, but southern influenced and curated. I’m a fresh-thinking, hands-on creative. I love making things and seeing them come to life. I started with a love for the printing process. That led me to a desire to concept and design what gets printed on paper. Atlanta helped raise me in the craft of art direction. I use these skills daily in just about everything I do. I’m an enforcer for details and have a need for quality that almost borders on obsessive. I bring enthusiasm, loyalty, and a good attitude with me. I like to walk up mountains, improve my home and hear live music. Thanks for stopping by.
