After graduating from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a degree in geology, he worked as an environmental field geologist performing superfund site assessments, and processing soil and water samples for a wide variety of projects. His passion for technology, mapping and storytelling inspired him to pursue a M.S in Geo-Information Science and remote sensing. Working in the mapping industry led him to the startup world in the late 1990’s working on the precursor to Google Earth and digital globe technologies at Skyline software.
Matt eventually found his way to Bose Corporation in 2001, where he has spent the last 20 years innovating in the areas of media production, spatial audio, digital signage and experience design.
At Bose, Matt creates unique prototype experiences that are used as the stepping stones for production-ready experiences for retail and beyond. Since 2005 he has been responsible for product demonstrations that make their way to retail locations and Bose events around the world.
Matt’s goal in life is to never be the smartest person in the room and question everything in the pursuit of a deeper understanding.
