An interview with Atticus' Matt Black
Tell us about yourself:
I was born and raised in Seattle, WA and currently reside in San Diego, CA. I received an honors degree in history from the University of Washington, and have since published a book and hundreds of web and print articles on a vast array of subjects. I like to consider myself a man of many interests, as I coach soccer and travel the world when I'm not coming up with the next great idea for Atticus.
Why did you join Atticus?
I have 12 years of consumer banking experience, making me a good fit to run Atticus’ content team. As a banker, and financial expert, I was amazed at how little I could help the bereaved through the estate settlement process, and the lack of interest my company showed toward this process. Atticus is filling a necessary void in people's financial lives and meeting them at the most difficult of times, and I'm proud to be a part of that.
