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 ① understand users’ needs, ② design solutions to meet them, 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 research projects that drive 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.
