Graphite on paper, 2015

With an exhaustive knowledge of both music and film paired with the kindest of hearts Matt has the ability to find the perfect sound to light up a dance floor. He and Kelly Beall are behind the In Bed by Ten dance party at Spirit once a month which serves as the best example of his talent. Inspired by hard working thirty somethings—Matt and his partner Kelly designed the perfect dance party that gets you out but back in quickly enough to not feel super guilty about it.

Other things that Matt excels at include creating clever and amusing prints and stationary and hosting delightful parties at his home where one can watch delightful soapy drama and enjoy ice cream.

Portrait note
