Hello, friends! My name's Matt and I'm incredibly stoked to join the McMahon team as an Engagement Marketing Specialist. I'll be managing social media for local businesses, crafting email campaigns, designing websites, and a little bit of everything in-between.

Here are a few things you should know about me.

1) You’ll probably find me with a camera plastered to my face.

I kicked off my paid video gig in high school, taping my middle school’s theatrical production of “Aladdin.”

Innocently, I assumed it wouldn’t be too difficult selling recordings of the play to fawning parents for a handsome profit. How hard could it be?

In-between an old woman bulldozing my borrowed camera and gunking up my fingertips on a homemade DVD label maker, I jumped into “A Whole New World” of visual creating.

I spent what must have been decades at the family iMac — my brow laboriously furrowed in frantic editing.

After countless nights of squinting into iMovie, I finished the project and raked in enough profit to help fund a Missions Trip to Brazil.

The movie? It was okay. But me — I had become a professional creator (and I’m still running with that for now).

2) I can obsess over my coffee for hours.

There's a lot more where this came from.

There's a lot more where this came from.

The addiction started with an awkwardly shaped plastic tube called an Aeropress.

It seemed innocent enough at first - like a toy.

But holy percolation, this unassuming coffee miracle-maker sent me on a 4-year journey into the heart of brewing obsession.

Since then, I’ve continued to faithfully drink delightful craft coffee using a small lab of beakers, grinders, vacuum-containers, kettles — and yes — a scale to weigh my beans by the gram like a scene straight out of Breaking Bad.

Come and join me for a cup anytime! It’s one of my favorite not-so-guilty pleasures.

3) You’ll find me shamelessly jamming to Hamilton in the McMahonCave’s back corner.

I feel strongly about a handful of music, but for the past several months the Broadway sensation about America’s scrappiest Founding Father has dominated my Spotify listening

Whether I’m grinding through worktalking a big game, or making a massive impression when I enter the room, there’s a star-studded Hamilton track relevant for every occasion.

In fact, if you Snapchat me (@fyredog) or McMahon Marketing (@gomcmkt), I’ll happily recommend a track tailored to your current mood.

I’m incredibly psyched to join the team and can’t wait to see what’s next! If you’d like to learn more about me, check out my online home at mattwoods.xyz.
