Oh hi, I'm Matthew. I’m a designer, entrepreneur and principal at Mountain Lab. I’ve worked with Google ATAP, IFTTT, and NEA.

I specialize in messaging and social apps. In fact, I'm the co-creator of quite a few of them: Shortwave, Hashtag, Movie Night and Podcastfoo.

I thrive in medium-sized teams that are able to act with a fair amount of autonomy. I'm happiest when able to take big risks.

My Story

I got into tech through a passion for politics; designing campaign tools for Obama at a startup called National Field. Before all of that, I got a BFA in Furniture Design from RISD and worked in international studios producing furniture for brands like Herman Miller, Established & Sons, Mattiazzi.

I spend alot of time thinking about the environmental nightmare created by landfills. In fact, I had a startup called Chorus that sought to address the problem in some novel ways. I raised money for it in a unique fashion via Upstart.

Let's chat.
