Before Glean

After leaving university with a Master’s Degree in Journalism, Matt turned to the dark side and instead went into the Marketing Industry, never looking back.

He learned SEO from scratch, firstly by joining a leading Leeds-based digital agency, where he stayed for four years before honing his skills in house at a local business intelligence software firm.

Matt began his Glean story at the beginning of January 2021 - coming onboard to project manage the delivery, optimisation, and migration of the company website.

Outside Glean

Matt has been an avid gamer ever since he inherited his older brother’s Sega Mega Drive once he’d left home. In 2006, he started his own YouTube channel - MattJ155 - where he still posts PS1- and PS2-era gaming videos whenever time permits.

Speaking of time, especially free time, this is something that has diminished for Matt in recent weeks, as he and his wife gave birth to their daughter Alyssa, who now occupies much of his evenings and weekends.
