When Matt’s high school government teacher convinced him to live tweet a State of the Union address, Matt’s obsession with the intersection of politics and communications was born. In GSG’s Washington office, Matt supports the Communications and Public Affairs practice, helping clients catalyze change with communication strategies that reach Capitol Hill, influential organizations, and the political media.
Before joining GSG, Matt interned at the White House on Vice President Biden’s communications team. While he never pulled off aviators as well as the veep, he did become an expert at monitoring mentions of the Vice President across national, regional, and social media. Matt was also a press intern to Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL) and an organizer for the “It’s On Us” campaign against campus sexual assault.
Matt graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with bachelor degrees in Political Science and Communication. When Matt’s eyes aren’t glued to Twitter for clients, you can find him cheering on the Chicago sports teams even though he can only name a few players (if any).
