Matt is a VP of Creative, Executive Creative Director at Dollar Shave Club with an entrepreneurial spirit and an obsession with ideas. During his career, he’s worked for some of the biggest and most respected advertising agencies in the world. An Australian, Matt started his career at DDB Sydney. He was then lured to DDB New York and then Anomaly New York. Over the years he’s created campaigns for some of the world’s biggest brands, such as McDonald’s, Volkswagen, Telstra, Hertz, New York Lottery, Marriott, Google, and Captain Morgan.
Matt’s work has been recognised at all the major award shows including Cannes, One Show, Clios, New York Festivals, Shots, London Internationals, Young Guns, D&AD and the Webby’s. His ideas aren’t just limited to advertising with some of his side projects becoming obsessions. Over the years he’s created an emoji-only messaging app for iPhone, illustrated a book that controversially ended up on SMH.com, started an art line exclusively for men, created the world’s first online music festival for sick kids, and set up an online listening service for anyone who needs an ear. When not thinking of ideas, he’s thinking of jokes for his very popular, albeit anonymous, Instagram meme account. Unfortunately we cannot reveal the account name in order to protect Matt’s identity.
