Refrences

Joshua Wilson

Associate Director at Center for Student Involvement

Matt was the type of student leader who was fully invested. He served as a graphic designer with the Center for Student Involvement at the University of South Florida for much of his time as a student. We saw Matt grow as a student leader to be a key voice for team relations, team community, and advancing marketing and graphic standards. Matt, helped us think boldly about our programs and strategies for reaching students. He merged his passion for Information Technology with his passion for marketing and graphics and the combination was an impressive feat. Any organization considering Matt would be lucky to have him on their team.

Currently located in Tampa, Florida.
Willing relocate. Experienced in working with teams remotely.
