Matt Medeiros wears many hats, but the one that is the driving force for all the others is: family man. That he gets to use his passion for technology and community only makes it better.
Matt’s passion for podcasting started from working as a “computer guy” with his dad in car sales, to a leader in the tech industry helping others understand and get started in podcasting, as well as running several successful podcasts of his own. Whether he’s talking tech on the Matt Report or the WP Minute or sharing local news and events on Southcoast.FM, you can be sure that he’s having fun doing it.
But the journey from “computer guy” to podcaster didn’t happen overnight. Matt’s journey included selling computers at Circuit City, building websites with his father in their own agency, working for WordPress hosting company Pagely, Director of Podcaster Success at Castos, and now WordPress Community Lead for Gravity Forms.
Matt and his dad, Mark Medeiros, realized the need for a local web agency and started building sites for others. With Matt as the “tech guy” and his dad as a photographer, they soon had their agency off and running. Matt’s dad still runs Slocum Studio, and Matt has taken on an advisory role for the business.
In his role at Gravity Forms, Matt creates written, audio, and video content to help WordPress power users understand the Gravity Forms plugin & ecosystem more deeply. One only has to meet with him in person or on a video call to know that his passion isn’t only for his own projects, but also in the success of others. Some call those kinds of roles “evangelist” roles, but to Matt it’s just how he is – invested in the success of others.
Back to his main “hat” and reason for everything he does, Matt resides in Massachusetts with his wife, Sarah (an ICU nurse), and three children, Brock, Gunnar, and Jett. His favorite thing to do is get outdoors with his family, play with his boys, and revel in family life.
