Technology

Matt is a product owner at Emma, helping teams deliver great product and platform enhancements on time. Before joining Emma, he worked as a special projects coordinator at CMT, and later as an A&R coordinator for Word Entertainment. He also (allegedly) once sported long, rock-star hair, though to date no photographic evidence of such has been produced. Oh wait, maybe it has. A graduate of Appalachian State in Boone, NC — magna cum laude we might add — Matt is an avid blogger, an avid fan of the show 24 and an avid Nintendo Wii player (see Matt's virtual tennis elbow). What can we say — the man’s got a mean virtual backhand. Watch out, Virtual Serena Williams — you’re next.
