Growing up Matt was heavily influenced by his native city of Buffalo’s rich architectural and creative history. These experiences led to an interest in the environments and interactions designed consciously and unconsciously in the everyday life.
Matt graduated from the University at Buffalo in 2012 with a Bachelors degree in Communication Design, which included a term at the Cambridge School of Art in England, where he honed his skills in typography and type design.
After graduating he went on to participate in DesignCities, a design expedition held in Berlin by DesignInquiry and the Design Research Lab. This exposure deeply impacted his decision to pursue Interaction Design at the School of Visual Arts.
In his spare time, Matt enjoys traveling and exploring new and different cultures. He is also an avid hockey fan.
