Matt Hennings

Marketing Art Director

I like pocket knives, wrist watches, Chuck Taylors, and jeans. I like staying up late, waking up early and being well rested. I like a vegan lunch and a fried chicken dinner. I like Wes Anderson films, dental floss and good bourbon. I like dads who care to be there, moms who care to teach, and families who care for each other. I like going somewhere and just being here. I like taking deep breathes and taking time to think. I like being happy without a reason, and if I were to need a reason, there's always bourbon.
