Mat’s mission is to help individuals show up authentically, owning their expertise and not shrinking down from their big dreams.
His focus on inner-purpose, confidence, passion and clarity has set his work apart from other marketers and freelance business strategists, who focus on tactics and gimmicks over relationships.
He’s worked with freelancers internationally to help them build their businesses while living an adventure-filled life in Eastern Kansas and abroad, with his four children and college sweetheart wife.
Mat spent 10 years working for some of Kansas City’s premier corporate web development teams and advertising agencies before launching his business. He has managed web and marketing communications for Fortune 500 clients, teaching marketing and business development to other creative professionals along the way.
Mat left his corporate career more than 15 years ago to start his full-time freelance design business and has never looked back.
In 2016, Mat founded Freelance On Fire so he could use his passion for helping others by offering guidance, support and encouragement to all freelancers, young and old.
