I'm Matthew Coleman, a copywriter / reformed art director.

I go by Matthew, not Matt (hence the URL), but I won't be mad either way. Call me Shirley. Call me by your name. It's all good!

I grew up in Texas and have spent my entire adult life wondering where my drawl went. My first job in the city was as a media planner, where I was told "there's creativity in the numbers." Then I figured out the creativity is in the creative, so here I am. I like words. I love ideas. And I'm still hoping that nice guys finish first, like my mama told me.
