About Me

I’m obviously Matt; an engineer turned writer that has worked on some cool stuff, almost went to medical school, and is a self proclaimed “cool guy”

I have some pretty good ideas. But I can only do so much, might as well share the rest, right?

Actually, who is this guy?


I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2020. In the years since, I’ve found myself heavily involved in some of the big current events: I worked on the supply chain side of the BinaxNOW COVID-19 rapid test and on the quality/regulatory side of the US infant formula shortage. Pretty cool, large scale initiatives. I lived in Chicago for 2 years, almost moved to Switzerland but moved to Ohio instead….. will be trying to make my way out at some point.

I was accepted to medical school, but decided not to go, so this is the start of my newly chosen journey of building some personal capital through writing about cool ideas, conversations with cool people, and whatever else it is that I find myself tangled in. Just trying to start some dialogue, meet fellow “cool guys and gals” and maybe open some more opportunities for myself along the way.

Love fitness, love sports, ~learning to love food~, and want to get my pilots license.

Open to consulting (I take Excel Macros to a new level), writing gigs, or investment opportunities.
