Experience

As an IT professional for small companies, Matthew often did more than just set up computer systems. He was tasked with helping these companies figure out how to be more efficient. He not only had to be good at analyzing what is needed, but be able to persuasively articulate why.

As a factchecker for Appen Inc. Matthew was tasked with managing the stream of misinformation that pervaded the late 2010s. He is a firm believer that bias is not something you eliminate, but rather manage. Maintaining objectivity in this role was important, and he actively sought to ensure that he was limiting the impact his implicit bias had on his actions.

Education

Matthew received a B.A. in History from Central Michigan University.
