Please provide a personal bio for other members to get to know you

My name is Matt Ray and I just graduated from Ohio State with a degree in Marketing. I grew up in Clintonville (in Columbus) so when looking for a full time job I wanted to try moving somewhere new. This August I will be moving to Arlington Virginia to start my professional career as a sales development representative at Cvent (an event planning software company). I am someone who is always working on side projects related to my passions which include sales, event planning, Pelotonia, video editing, and travel. In my free time I enjoy going to breweries, flying my drone, playing ping pong, cycling, and spending time with friends. I’m super excited to begin this Unreal Collective journey!

Please provide an overview of the project(s) you'll be focusing on for the next 12 weeks as part of Unreal Collective.

I will be focusing on growing my video storytelling/creation business. To do this I need to organize my portfolio of work on a website in an organized manner. In addition, I will be figuring out strategic ways to build my client base. I am also working towards becoming a “High Roller” in Pelotonia and am looking for new/strategic ways to achieve this.
