My name is Matt Abele. I have a passion to communicate through digital means, whether that be social media, graphic design, photography, website design, or videography. Over the years, I have gained wonderful on the ground experience through internships and freelance work.
I received my bachelor's degree in Appropriate Technology from Appalachian State University in 2013. This program focused on technical solutions to problems facing both society and the environment. Appropriate Technology provided a strong background in renewable energy systems and information regarding society’s use of natural resources.
After graduation, I sought to incorporate my environmental background into my passion for communication. I filled this gap in fall 2013 when I began the Master's of Communication program at NC State University. Within this program I have dedicated my studies to environmental communication. More specifically, I have been focusing on environmental advocacy groups and coal ash within the state of North Carolina. Soon, I hope to take my experience and knowledge into the working world when I graduate in May 2015.
Currently, I am available for freelance hire on any sort of graphic design, video, or photography project.
