Matthew [carrozo]

Creative Director / Director of Brand and Communication @ Unbabel

I write and direct digital strategies, experiences and content that tell great stories and grow businesses. 

I’ve a decade’s worth of experience showing brands how to use their finite resources in a creative manner in order to achieve measurable business results.

I back that up with creative vision, broad technical knowledge and, I think, a rare common sense. 

I’m nimble, hands-on, rarely satisfied with the status quo and obsessed with getting good stuff done well.

I was born in New York City, moved to Lisbon, Portugal in my early teenage years, and then on to the UK where I studied at the University of Kent in Canterbury, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Multimedia Technology Design in 2007.

I then spent 7 years (and one day) living and working in London; client-side, agency-side, devising digital content and social media strategies, managing large-scale marketing campaigns, for the likes of Sky, Freesat, Channel 4 and many others.

I relocated to Lisbon in January 2015 to become tech recruitment marketplace's first Head of Marketing, which I relaunched as, quintupling its userbase and contributing to a similar rise in revenue. 

As of September 2016, I am Director of Brand and Communication at Unbabel, which enables multilingual communication across 28 languages using a combination of artificial intelligence and a crowd of 50,000. 

You can check out more of my work here or see a detailed history on LinkedIn. Or see some of the experimental video work I've done over the years.

I consult for, create for and mentor individuals within startup and media brands in Lisbon, London and beyond. 

The five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

I am available for limited consulting and speaking opportunities; contact me today.
