Who is behind Just Keep Swimming?

14192130_10154234828215219_214218750602059772_nHello, my name is Matthew.  I’m a Social Media Consultant, Graphic Designer, Web Developer, Photography, Selfie Queen, Disney Geek, ΑΦΩ Brother, LGBT Activist, and Foodie.

When I moved to Chicago in 2011, I would never realize what an impact it would have on my life. I had the opportunity to live and learn in the heart of Chicago. Being just a few blocks away from public transportation the city is at my fingertips. I have always been passionate about photography, whether I’m pulling out me digital SLR or just my iPhone these days. I’m just trying to share just a little of my WORLD.  And anyone who knows me knows that I love a good #selfie. Besides Photography I am an avid Social Media user just hanging out and being social. But I’m not just a user I enjoy sharing my social media knowledge.

Outside of the digital world I’m an explorer, always looking for something new to discover and experience. I have been lucky in life to have had a few once in a lifetime experiences. So I’m always on the lookout for new experiences. As result each morning I remind myself to live each day to the fullest and not to pass up any opportunities that may come my way. To keep myself open to new experiences and always try something at least once because you never know what you may like.

A little about me, I have a background in marketing, social media, graphic and web design. By day I’m an onboarding specialist/front end developer for a template based website company. Outside of my day job I freelance work under my personal business M85 Digital Media. I’m always looking for opportunities to use my creative capabilities, especially as they relate to today's digital world.

When it comes to my spare time I enjoy hanging out with family and friends, cooking, shopping and watching Netflix.

I’m looking forward to bring you the latest things going on in my world as I Just Keep Swimming!

Matthew
