Hello! My name’s Matty, and I’m a content writer at Webfor. I joined the crew in 2018.
I grew up in Miami, where I played a lot of baseball and basketball and tried not to get sunburned. I studied journalism and history at the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and I was a reporter at The Gainesville Sun and the (Leesburg) Daily Commercial. I moved to the Pacific Northwest on a (sorta) whim in 2006 and took a job at The Oregonian/OregonLive, working in both production and news roles. I was also letters editor, page designer and social media guru for The O’s Pulitzer Prize-winning opinion team.
When I’m not crafting compelling content for clients, I write for Rip City Project and volunteer (writer/editor/media consultant) for The Immigrant Story. I’ve also written a ton of music, and I act in regional film productions.
