Hi, I'm Matt.
I'm a staff reporter and video journalist for the BBC News with a taste for interactive web and a keen interest in science and technology. I currently work at the BBC Worldwide headquarters in New York City and reside in sunny Brooklyn, New York.In the past, I have worked as a staff video producer for Discovery Channel, a reporter for a Japanese newspaper and a cash register salesman at a company that will remain nameless. I am also the founder of several web-based political initiatives and social experiments. Most recently, I created a social media-based time perception project called The Time Hack, which forced me to participate in a new and unusual activity each day throughout 2011 in order to explore whether our perception of time is influenced by our actions. Other journalism projects I've created or helped out with in my free time include Tabs on Obama, Around America in 2.0 and Small World News.
When I'm not working, I give talks about the intersection of technology and journalism as well as the unusual experiences I've had as a journalist on the road. Other interests include: bicycles, dogs, skateboards and claiming that I will learn to surf one day.
