    Matt emerged in 2013 from an over 10-year corporate career working in systems, marketing, and social strategy for brands like Sprint and H&R Block. Known as a challenger of the status quo, he caused plenty of trouble while meddling in aspects outside of his job description where he thought he could help. Matt also co-founded Streetcar Neighbors, the grassroots organization supporting Kansas City's forthcoming streetcar system, and sits on a variety of official boards, commissions, and neighborhood and advocacy organizations. He likes to watch (and play) soccer and has a favorite pizza place in most major American cities.

Is There There There?: The Story of ... Edition

September 26, 2014 // by Patience Jones

Tell me a story. No, not that one. And definitely not that one. Tell me a story about something that makes me care about what you do, because this is what will endear me to you and make me buy what you’re selling. We tackle how brands can tell stories and why it’s important, building off our own (ahem) Road vs Rails project.

Plus: Several gross people do gross things without shame, a new conference promotes new technologies, someone’s campaign manager likes Kafka a little too much, and PJ highlights the emotional aftermath of the Scottish independence referendum.
