Matt has led web and mobile development teams for some of the world’s largest brands: Macy’s, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Esquire and PwC to name a few. A thought leader on civic and health tech, Matt worked with NYC Councilman Ben Kallos to research legislation that would modernize access to government social services and testified in front of the NYC Council regarding the legislation.
