A Trusted Digital Marketing Team To Help You Grow Your BrandMEET THE TEAM
Matt has developed a trusted team that grows your brand, simplifies your digital marketing efforts, and helps create engaging and dynamic content. He oversees all aspects of Wander Creative including growth strategies, marketing campaigns, content creation, and client relationships.
Immediately after graduating from Belmont University in Nashville, TN with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, Matt worked full time in publicity within the CCM industry before opening Wander Creative in 2012.
He toured extensively with CCM artist Sidewalk Prophets, capturing video, tour LED, and marketing content. His experiences with Sidewalk Prophets led to more work with some of the biggest names in the Christian Music Industry, including TobyMac, Francesca Battistelli and Chris Tomlin. As a video director, Matt has also created video content for artists and labels that have gained millions of views on YouTube and been part of live concerts seen by hundreds of thousands of fans.
Matt opened the Digital Marketing side of Wander when he saw that in addition to creating dynamic content for artists, he could also help them stand out on social media and other digital platforms by building a team to help them get their message out to the world.
Wander Creative has grown rapidly because of the results they have achieved for some of the biggest names in Nashville including GRAMMY Award winner Zach Williams and multiple Compassion Productions Tours.
Matt lives in Nashville with his wife, musician Carmen Justice. He loves helping clients achieve their goals, is intensely focused on making data-driven decisions, and believes that marketing is about building relationships and living with purpose.
