Matthew Straub | The #NEPACreative Series | Coal Creative

Full story here.

Throughout 2017, we are working with our interns to highlight 52 Creatives from the NEPA region. We believe creativity is a broad term that cannot be easily confined within the walls of one simple definition. We want to know what being creative means to you and how you bring that creativity to light.

Matthew Straub is our 30th #NEPACreative of 2017. Matt brings creativity to the area through sound.

Matt’s interest in audio began in the attic of his old house in Hazleton. With his father working as a radio broadcaster for over 16 years, his father accumulated a lot of equipment. He loved experimenting with equipment such as old records, 8-Track tapes, Reel-To-Reel tapes and more.

This experimentation fueled Matt and brought him through high school to working as a freelance audio engineer and sound designer throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania
