My name’s Matt and I live in New York City.

I help 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.

I work on a small, yet prolific, user research team that supports product development across our digital portfolio, from NYTimes.com and our recent redesign efforts to our ever-growing suite of apps.

We collaborate closely with internal product, design, development, newsroom, and marketing teams on a diverse set of challenges, from optimizing user flows that support our digital subscription business to helping organize our election night packages on NYTimes.com to our recent strategic initiatives focused on new product development.

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.
