...what i do...

Photography

Master of light! From fast-paced event coverage to complex studio setups, I make sure to get the shot.

Graphic Design

My specialties are print-based designs ranging from multi-page books and magazines to large-format prints. From page layout, logos, letterhead and business cards and illustrations, nothing is to big or small.

Social Media

Got a great new ad campaign? Let me tell it and share with the world! There is a method to the social madness and I can bring followers to your company and keep sustained interest.

Videography

From the camera to editing suite to broadcast. I make sure everything looks and sounds great from TV to web to any device that plays video!

...about me...

Hi, I'm Matt!

I have a strong background in graphic design, photography and videography. My strongest skill is continuing to find ways of simplifying complex topics in a way that is easy to grasp and visually stunning. I apply this not only to my job, but my entire life. My passion is using technology as my paintbrush and make the end result fun and fresh for the target audience. Great design is in displaying the content in a way that is easy for any age to understand in the shortest amount of time.
