Matt’s Bio

Your major: Video/Radio Production

Your hometown: Drexel Hill, PA

Where do you live now? Salt Lake City, UT

What are you passionate about? I enjoy watching sports and reading comic books. I have enjoyed watch sports for most of my life. I follow many pro sports leagues including the NFL, MLB, the NBA and the NHL. I follow college football as well. I began reading comic books in 2012. I enjoyed comic book movies and television shows but I did not read comic books growing up until the last several years

What is your favorite class (or classes) at SLCC? I enjoy the classes COMM 1560 Radio Performance and Production and COMM 2570 Introduction to Visual Communication. Radio Performance and Production is interesting because the course involves getting the experience of speaking on the SLCC radio network and at SLCC sporting events. Introduction to Visual Communication is an interesting course because I have the opportunity to learn how significant communication is through images and photos are and how images and photos are processed.

Which actor/actress would play you in your life movie? I have been a fan of Michael Keaton since I saw the movie Batman when I was a child. He has a lot of range as an actor and can play many types of characters effectively.

Where do you see yourself in five years? I see myself being a radio producer for a sports radio station. I enjoy listening to sports talk radio and I would like to work for a radio station where I have an interest in the content at the station I am working at.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? There are quite a few superpowers I would like to have since I enjoy comic books, superhero movies and television shows. If I had to choose one superpower, having psychokinetic abilities would be interesting. Perhaps it is because I enjoy the show Stranger Things but I think it would be interesting to move things with my mind.

Something about you that other people would be surprised to know: I have cerebral palsy and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
