Hey there, I’m Matt!
I’m the Founder and Executive Director of Constructive. One of the things I’m most passionate about is finding new ways to unite brand strategy and design thinking to create experiences that help make the world a more equitable, enjoyable, and sustainable place.
Q: What's one thing you won't learn from my bio?
My wife Tonya and I have an amazing 13-year-old child, Sam, who is strong, empathetic, smart, and funny. I'm also objective.
