In the fall of 2016, Matt began to attend Point Park University for Cinema Arts, where he was hired as a student to help create content for the University's Instagram account. At the same time, Matt began to build his own social media presence by sharing sci-fi inspired imagery and his passion for technology, which lead to him working as a promotional partner with brands like Express, Reef, and Hefty. Since then, Matt has left Point Park University due to physical availability and is continuing his education online.

In 2017, Matt was a commissioned artist for a Breast Reconstruction Day event hosted by LUXE Creative in which he was creating an installation that was both an art piece and a functional computer for the show. This combination of technology and art was created to highlight the importance of advancing the technologies behind reconstruction. The piece was auctioned off to a private buyer.
