pleased to meet you

My name is Matt, and I’m a storyteller.

Born and raised in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the road has taken me to London, New York, Los Angeles and other locales that fire up the imagination. I’m the co-author of Marathon Man (St. Martin’s Press, 2013), the new memoir from running legend Bill Rodgers.

I’m also the co-author of New York Jets Hall of Famer Don Maynard’s memoir, You Can’t Catch Sunshine (Triumph Books, 2010) and the writer of Then Madden Said To Summerall: The Best NFL Stories Ever Told (Triumph Books, 2009).

I’ve interviewed countless celebrities, including Adrian Grenier, Jonah Hill, Roger Waters, Guy Pearce, Rose McGowan, Jonathan Demme, Jerry Rice, Stephen Frears, Teresa Palmer, Justin Townes Earle, Method Man, Phil Simms, Two Door Cinema Club, Sherri Shepherd, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Ari Graynor, Joe Namath, Blues Traveler, Derek Luke,  Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells and more.

I’ve written for TribecaFilm.com, Big Think, New York Post, Esquire, New York Magazine, Playboy, Los Angeles Times, Black Book Magazine, Time Out New York, Gawker and The Village Voice. I contributed Best Film Deaths to the pop culture book, The Enlightened Bracketologist: The Final Four of Everything (Bloomsbury, 2007). I’ve been interviewed by the New York Times, New York Post, Canadian Running, ESPN radio, Clear Channel and NPR.

I’ve utilized my storytelling expertise as a creative strategist  for Velocidi, Egg Design, and Elias World Media. At the core of my work is the strategizing and creating of compelling branded content across different mediums. Clients have included Phillips (Consumer Product), Cybex (Lifestyle), Medidata (Pharma/SaaS), TRA Global (Tech) and La Prairie (Beauty). Here’s my portfolio.

When my fingers are not dancing on the keyboard, I enjoy music (my current obsessions: London Grammar, Ray Lamontagne, Woods and Future Islands), films (actors that I’ll see in just about anything: Joseph Gordon Levitt, Bryan Cranston, Scarlett Johansson, Matthew Rhys, Keri Russell, Jason Statham,  Alexandra Daddario, Matthew McConaughey, and Michael Fassbender), skiing, taking in a baseball game, rafting on the Ramapo River with friends, and winding late-night conversations.
