Matt joined the University after ten-plus years of creative work in commercial photography, creative/art direction, editing/writing, marketing, and project management. Prior to moving to Charlottesville, he lived and worked in the Roanoke area, where he earned his Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Roanoke College (2003) and his MBA from Averett University (2007). He joined the MRP team as Communications Lead in May 2017, where he leads creative direction and communications for the Managerial Reporting / UBI initiatives, and assists in leading creative direction and communications for UVA Finance.
He is most rewarded with telling stories - whether through graphics, words, or photos. Outside of the office, Matt enjoys writing, reading, music, hiking, biking, camping, and exploring outdoors as much as possible.
