I have been a creative in retail for over 15 years. I have experienced various aspects of the merchandising, product design, digital and marketing world.
I am now applying this in my current role at Aquent where I apply my experience and creative eye to review portfolios and resumes that match what today's Creative Directors are looking for.
I work with Corporate clients such as: Restoration Hardware, Levi's, Gap, Sephora, Westfield, Walmart, Williams Sonoma, Bare Escentuals and Charlotte Russe.
Feel free to reach out to me about anything, I am always happy to chat!
"“Matt worked tirelessly to set up meetings for me with Walmart.com, who wanted me to meet with 7 people on 3
occasions, which takes a lot of planning. Matt did this work over a span of a month, which included closing the deal
with Walmart.com while he was out sick. Matt was easy going and comforting from the minute we first talked and
changed my perception of creative hiring agencies. I will now be recommending my friends head to Aquent when they
are looking for new work.”"
"“Working with Matt at Aquent has been a rewarding journey. His expertise on retail, talent recruitment and love for
design and creativity has captivated me and made me realize that I am on good hands. He is open and honest, which
are critical when gaining someone's trust.”"

"“I can't recommend Matt highly enough! At our first meeting in mid-September 2012 he had reviewed my resume and
already had some ideas for job placement for me. By mid-October I had interviewed and started a freelance gig at
Restoration Hardware. As that project began to wind down he reached out to colleagues at Aquent and found me
another gig at a local small published. Matt's been great at matching my skills to freelance positions.”"
