Tell better stories.

ask better questions.


I create and direct the words, imagery, video & strategies to help people & brands connect with and grow their audiences. I believe whoever tells the best story wins and whoever can ask the best questions can build the future. Join me on instagram @matthewdesotell.

VIDEO - my favorite medium and one where I do the most work. The combination of sound & imagery to create the right feeling, message and story is a fulfilling process. So many great ways to use video these days. “Micro-content” is what I’m most interested in currently.

For me the process starts with finding what is emotional about a “thing.” Then, the ideas, words and imagery are created.
