Head of Editorial at Google
Matt is the Head of Editorial at Google, where is the leader and cofounder of the Google Ink editorial team, keeping participles undangled and corporate jargon untangled, in all of our written communications. The team is responsible for defining and refining the Google voice in major speeches, executive presentations, op-ed’s, blog posts, social media, internal news, and all manner of creative and editorial work. Matt came to Google in 2012, from the White House, where he served as Vice President Joe Biden’s chief speechwriter for the first three-plus years of the Obama administration. For his next job, he hopes to become offensive coordinator for the Green Bay Packers. He has a bachelor’s of journalism degree from the University of Texas and a JD from the University of Wisconsin. Matt lives in Palo Alto with his wife Jaime, daughters Devin and Peri, and the world’s only hyperactive basset hound, Furley.
