"He thinks about things on a level that is both philosophical and practical and this translates to a truly meaningful contribution on a higher plane."

I got to know Matt during one of our holistic projects, which is publicly know as Concept 26. Matt is an extremely talented guy, which I have come to expect of anyone that enters our realm here at VMCC. But he has a quality that is very rare as well. He thinks about things on a level that is both philosophical and practical and this translates to a truly meaningful contribution on a higher plane. He is unafraid to dive in and get involved any design problem and search for true understanding on a fundamental level, which is critical for effective solutions. I'd love to work with him again anytime.

Let’s Talk!

A few things 🙄
clients normally ask me:

What is your work discipline?

I've been disciplined to stay my lane in all things visual ; ) I grew up drawing cartoons with my father. When I started learning the Adobe Suite in 2008, the world was quickly shifting from print to web. Since then, I've made an art out of designing and making visuals that communicates in digital mediums, as well as printed goods. Every now and then I get the paints out. But for me, creating video and putting custom illustrations into sizzling motion in Adobe After effects or the web is the most rewarding.

What is your location & timezone?

I'm located in Southern California on the border of Malibu and Westlake Village in the Pacific Time Zone, enjoying mountain life and making excursions to the ocean for surf.

How often can we communicate?

As often as required. I respect your time, you respect mine...with a shared urgency to complete projects in a speedy time frame. Yay for the remote work environment! I do phone calls, email, zoom, and even have a private one-on-one chat space for clients over in the Sol Community.

What is your  hourly rate?

I prefer not to bill hourly, so I don't! But you can imagine my premium services being worth north of $100/hour. Sign on to a Sol Creator Pro subscription, and you'll more than likely find that you'll get above and beyond what you hoped for in a moonthly time-frame at half the cost of a full-time employee.
