Matt is currently VP of Marketing and Communications at Twitch, the world’s leading video platform and community for gamers. Twitch launched in June 2011, won a Webby Award in May 2012, and is growing fast. Business Insider called Twitch “one of Silicon Valley’s Hottest startups.” Slate called the company “the YouTube of video gaming.” And CBS News called the site “addictive.”

Often called “Instagram for video,” The New York Times called Socialcam “the most talked about video app,” and CNET called it “mobile video sharing done right.”
From 2007 to 2010, Matt was Director of Marketing and Communications at Federated Media. During that time, FM became one of the leading voices in new media, and is now a top media property per comScore. At FM, we pioneered the idea of Conversational Marketing, ran some of Twitter’s first forays into the advertising business, and helped grow TechCrunch, Mashable, and hundreds of other independent media sites into digital stalwarts.
