Hello, my name is Matt.

I’m an experienced researcher and strategist with a background in digital design, journalism, and anthropology.

I help teams build effective news products by working with them to understand users’ needs, design solutions to meet them, then build and measure those solutions in the real world to see if they work.

Currently, I conduct user experience research at The New York Times where I work on research projects that support decision-making across our digital portfolio, from NYTimes.com to our ever-growing suite of mobile apps.

Before this I was studying for my master’s in the Studio 20 program at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, with a third of my coursework in the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at the Tisch School of the Arts.

And before that I received my bachelor’s in Media Anthropology from Wesleyan University.
