We Are Personal Journalists.
Your Life, Your Story.
Matt has covered the men and women of the US military for over 13 years and understands the universal need of individuals to be acknowledged for their work and commitment. A staff sergeant with the 104th Fighter Wing, Matt has earned numerous decorations and awards since joining the military after the 9/11 attacks. A veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom, he has served as a Soldier and Airmen during a distinguished career that saw him cover stories from across the world. Covering the Marines, Soldiers, Airmen, and Sailors who embody the strength and pride of our country have been an honor for Matt.
Matt has been awarded Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Armed Services Medal, Air Force Expeditionary Medal with Gold Border, 104th Fighter Wing NCO of the Year and Air Force Commendation Medal, among several decorations. His articles have appeared in national and international news outlets including the Springfield Republican, Air Force News and Navy Times.
Respect and recognition are powerful and validate our work. In the military, service members receive awards and decorations for exemplary performance of their duties. The civilian business sector has no equivalent. Matt is positioned to articulate each personal story. ERS is not a blog or a boiler plate platform but an innovative form of “personal journalism.”
Colonel once told him that if “you don’t write it down, it never happened” and he was right.
“Matt is interested in the quiet courage of compelling individuals and takes pride in eloquently telling their story – because everyone has a story to tell.
These businesses are started as a passion, the culmination of a life’s work, and need more than advertising to convey their value to their customer base.
So many of our seniors have remarkable life stories that are lost forever because they were never recorded (raising children, serving in the military, starting businesses, overcoming hardship). Matt has an innate ability to allow individuals to relax and relate their life story. It is critical to hear these important life narratives before time and memories fade. Family history is the cornerstone of all our lives and Matt will conduct extensive interviews and produce an article for personal or private use.
In today’s changing economy we are all entrepreneurs and possess a brand of one sort or another. Allow Matt to write a piece to be featured on your LinkedIn account, Facebook, or any news outlet (trade publication, local newspapers).
Competing for worthwhile and meaningful positions today requires diligence and creativity. Matt can tailor a piece to feature your most compelling attributes while targeting positions most commensurate with your specific skill set.
Matt can write a piece giving the admissions board a clear picture of your character, abilities, and potential, from college to graduate programs and beyond.
Wedding, Anniversaries, Milestones
Your wedding day may be the most important event of your life. So many brides and grooms recall their special day with fondness but refer to the celebration as a “blur” due to the emotion and anxiety of the day.
