“It’s rare that you meet someone who’s passion for making the complex simple. Its even more rare to find a person who combines that passion with the ability to communicate not just the what and how, but the why of their direction. Matthew has these gifts and more. During the time we worked together, he taught me a tremendous amount about both product management and user experience. If you ever have the chance to work with him, do it. He’ll improve your team, your company, and your product.”
"Matthew is rad to play D&D with. And, it turns out, if he learns the party Druid is struggling to find a job IRL, he will make it his mission to fix that. Matthew helped me not just completely rewrite my resume, but rethink how I present myself and my design experiences. He also connected me to the company I'm now working at, so another 100 XP for networking!"
"I met Matthew at a session he organized through Studio VO to help improve UX designer portfolios. I found his way of suggesting improvements and changes to be unlike the standard hard-ass coaches out there. Somehow he's mastered the art of making you feel good about yourself, but at the same time still point out ways you can improve. He's been an instrumental mentor in my career, making me realize my value, strengths, as well as how I can improve, and 95% of the time, I'm smiling or laughing my way through meetings with him. He has a knack for presenting new information without making me feel stupid for not knowing something."
"Matthew has guided me through many challenges during my career in UX. When I started, he helped me see past tools and methods and understand problems underlying designs. As I grew into my career, he connected me with the broader design community. And when I became a manager, he showed me how to lead other designers. He has seen everything; twice. There’s no better person to help you find your way in UX."
