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 doing research to understand users’ needs, designing solutions to meet them, then building and measuring 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.
