Recently, we welcome a new content creator, Matt, to our team. Get to know him better!
Explain your job at Amilia
I’m a Content Specialist here at Amilia. I have a hand in brainstorming and designing all our content ideas, as well as leading the creation process for new material as well as the review process for content that has already been made that we want to re-share or update.
Favorite thing about working at Amilia?
It’s the team members that I get to work with every day. Such an amazing group of people who are super smart and work hard but, at the same time, are fun, energetic and never fail to make me smile!
Dream travel destination?
There are several others I could easily throw up as an answer, but the truest response is Barcelona. Not only is Spain such a fascinating country for me from a historical point of view, but I’m a huge fan of their soccer team and my dream sports getaway is to Camp Nou.
Movie title best describes your life?
I feel like different movie titles describe different periods of my life. When I was a toddler, “Kicking and Screaming.” When I was a teenager, “Dazed and Confused.” When I tried online dating, “Mean Girls.” And now? Probably “The Pursuit of Happyness.”
What song do you always dance or sing along to?
It’s a toss-up between Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” and Cher’s “If I Could Turn Back Time” – basically, if a song’s lyrics with the subject matter of time, that’s my cue to sing.
Superpower you wish you had?
I’d say flying. Think of the money you’d save on plane tickets, gas for your car and overpriced food at rest areas. I mean, it’s also environmentally friendly, but seriously: the path to early retirement is in the ability to fly.
Social media app of choice?
I’m one of those people who takes pictures of their food (that I cook though, not restaurant food) and post them on Instagram. I am so vain and thank you for asking, Carly Simon.
I’m also on Twitter way too often.
Skill you'd like to master someday?
This may sound really basic to some, but I want to be able to make a butter chicken sauce that thickens up properly and doesn’t separate. True story: I attempted one such recipe for this not long ago and, despite following the instructions supper accurately and spending extra time letting the sauce simmer, it didn’t work. I cursed at my stove multiple times. I apologized after, but we’re still not on speaking terms.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
This is three straight answers to do with food – I sound obsessed. Anyways, my choice for this is either homemade tortilla soup (seriously delicious) or some pizza.
Do you collect anything? If so, what?
I’m a huge movie enthusiast and I collect a lot of old movies on Blu Ray. Recent purchases include: “Night of the Hunter,” “Heat” and the criminally underrated “Cocktail.” I’ve always wondered if Tom Cruise would actually quit acting one day and become a bartender who spills ice everywhere…
