IN THE SUMMER OF '91, Tom and Elizabeth Neylon co-created their joint venture: Matthew Neylon. In 2006, he rebranded to Matt. And after 18 years of year-over-year growth, he went independent. Tom and Elizabeth's mission was to nurture Matt to be an upstanding member of society. Instead, he went into advertising.

I'm a copywriter + creative writer based out of LA, and based in advertising, content and entertainment.
I've worked with a few brands (and have won a few pitches and awards):
I've written scripted comedy for a few funny folks— Kevin Hart, Tim Chantarangsu (fka Delaghetto), Renny & David So.
Back in the day, I studied at a few schools in a few places where I learned a few things and got a few degrees.
Nowadays I aim to create shit worth feeling and bridge communities... all while striving to make "multicultural" what it is for me: just culture.
Thanks for reading. Don't forget to be kind and weird... we're all gonna die one day.

In the words of Marie Kondo, these things bring me joy: the EPL/La Liga/MLS, trail running, cyling, the lush green outdoors, a good breaded tenderloin, chindogu, Edgar Wright films, maps, Aunty Donna, Patton Oswalt, Theo Von (gang gang), How I Built This, 99PI, bar trivia over pitchers of beer with the boys, hapa culture, people weirder than me, language, a good bourbon in front of a cracklin fire, watching cars stop to let all of the baby geese cross the road, and etceteras.
