Director, Digital Content & Product Manager
"You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give." - Sir Winston Churchill
As Director of Digital Content and Product Manager for Cinequest, Matt has collaborated with leading Silicon Valley partners to integrate new and emerging technologies on Cinequest properties. Matt has constantly streamlined the operational aspects of Cinequest and successfully launched innovative online services including creativity contests, sales/ticketing platforms, content distribution libraries, websites, and cross-platform tablet and mobile applications. During the Cinequest Film & VR Festival, Matt works to ensure a world-class level of technical implementation—managing all audio and video presentations for screenings and events, while also coordinating film shipments, projectionists, technical staff, and volunteers.
Matt is driven by the knowledge that his work impacts people in a meaningful way. Seeing smiles on people's faces when they watch Cinequest films or interact with the Cinequest website rewards him for his hard work and drives him to continuously search for ways to enhance our audience’s experience. Since 2005, Matt has constantly streamlined the operational aspects of Cinequest and successfully launched five websites, alongside tablet and mobile applications for Blackberry, iOS, and Android.
Matt’s love for the creative world continues outside of Cinequest. The film enthusiast loves working on new technologies, digital photography, and design while staying active playing hockey.
