Six-word bio: 
Think Big! Stay Focused! Never Quit!

Matt brings more than 20 years of professional branding and marketing experience to the University of Michigan. Before joining U-M in 2010, Matt co-led a 25-person advertising agency, where—as a partner and part owner—he concentrated on building the education practice for the agency.

Matt’s journeys have taken him around the country and around the globe, from Alaska to Australia and many points in between. All told, his professional and personal travels have taken him to 6 continents, more than 40 countries and territories —and to all 50 U.S. states. For him, both the benefits of travel and the benefits of education are key to broadening the mind, to embracing new ideas and cultures, to growing intellectually, and to staying young.

Matt is a graduate of Northern Michigan University with a BS in Business Administration and Marketing.
