Matthew is a freelance marketing and public relations consultant. He is passionate about social media (and has been known to obsessively check the latest stats on who has retweeted him lately).
His background includes working for a PR firm in downtown Chicago, a publicist at the National Geographic Channel, a spokesman for a national trade association, and as a marketing pro for a 24-hour news station in Washington, DC.
Matthew is also a part-time graduate student at DePaul University, where he is earning his MBA degree in Integrated Marketing Communications and E-Business.
His blog, Knowledge Enthusiast, is among the fastest growing Wordpress.com blogs. Well, at least in December 2009.
In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his new daughter, working out, and playing basketball and golf. He has run two marathons (Chicago and New York) and two half marathons with his lovely wife.
