Hello, my name is Matt.

I’m an experienced practitioner of product strategy, research/analytics, and user experience design working on tools at the forefront of learning and communication.

I help teams build effective news products by working with them to ① understand users’ needs, ② design solutions to meet those needs, then ③ 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 projects across our digital portfolio, from nytimes.com to our mobile apps.

I also teach product development in the Journalism + Design program at The New School, and have guest lectured at Columbia and New York University.

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.
