Hello. I’m Matt. I was born in 1980 in Boulder, Colorado and grew up there until college when I moved to Fort Collins to attend Colorado State University. From my earliest memories as a child, I’ve always had an interest in art. I was very fortunate to have a family and teachers that encouraged me in my passion. Art has always served as a respite from life’s demands and a way to explore parts of the world that I don't normally experience in my daily routine. For this reason, I’ve focused mostly on landscape with several artistic mediums over the years. The inherent abstract quality in the forms and shapes in wilderness, combined with the right light and atmosphere, create scenes that surpass anything I could imagine. If I’m successful in capturing these moments, though they can last mere minutes, seconds or even less, they serve as a reminder that our lives exist in context with something much larger.
When I’m not pouring my heart and wallet into photography, I work as an Interactive Designer at The Tenfold Collective in Loveland. In this role, I’m able to combine my creative talents with my analytical and methodical mind to create websites and other interactive experiences.
