Matthew Blom, Copywriter / eMarketing
Interested in Marketing since high school, Matthew was not one to take the established path. His own journey found him earning a BA in Psychology from SFU and a Certificate of Marketing and Sales from UFV: for more breadth in his education, and to better understand the "Psychology of Selling." Matthew is a self-described "rabid" movie fan knowing too much about characters you'll never meet, and places that don't exist. In his other free time he enjoys socializing with friends, writing for fun, and the occasional overly-competitive game of street hockey.
