Matt’s objective as a UX Designer is to build the bridge between the client’s expertise and the end user’s needs. Through user research and universal design principles, he helps companies transform complex problems into elegant digital experiences.
Over the past 10 years, Matt’s worked with a diverse portfolio of organizations, from small startups to large government agencies. Matt recognizes that every client and every problem brings new challenges, whether it be designing for mission-critical environments like military Search-And-Rescue, the institutional rigor of prominent financial institutions, or the individualized needs of promising young startups. With his strong background in visual design and devotion to learning about clients and their prospective users, his mission is to help clients tell their stories through usable, thoughtful design.
The most rewarding part — and the main motivation — of his job is building an experience and product that directly and positively improves a person’s life. He accomplishes that via thorough research, studying user flows, usability testing, and building thoughtful visual designs that are scalable in a pattern library.
When he’s not wireframing in Balsamiq or designing in Sketch, Matt’s pursuing his passion for cooking, playing guitar for his baby girl, and exploring new travel destinations.
