Matthew recently joined our team as our Director of Digital Optimization. We wanted to get to know him a little better with a Q&A.
What is your new role at ColinKurtis? I will be focusing on SEO and PPC (paid Google Ads).
What does a typical day look like? My typical day will be a mix of checking on the paid accounts, implementing optimizations, attending meetings, and completing some scheduled SEO tasks.
What part of your role do you enjoy the most? Digging into client’s websites, discovering a problem, and figuring out how to solve it ,with elegance and a smile.
Can you tell us a little about your professional background? I have been practicing the mystical art of digital marketing for over 15 years. I have worked on a variety of clients. Most recently, I worked for Edelman as a Director of SEO for some key clients.
How do you enjoy spending your time outside the office? My hobbies include swimming, woodworking / doing stuff around the house, cooking, biking and hiking with the family.
What did you want to be when you grew up (before you knew you would have a career in marketing)? I wanted to be an astronaut when I was in elementary school. It looked like so much fun to float—even better than floating underwater with a scuba tank on since it would last longer.
