Collin Matthews is the founder and managing director of Press Foundry, a WordPress development agency based in Boston. He possesses over a decade of web development and design experience with clients ranging from local small businesses to enterprise and Fortune 500 companies. When he’s not working on innovative web projects, he is an avid runner and is in the process of launching his forthcoming digital publication series, Project NOVUM.
From what started as a weekend hobby on a rainy afternoon, Collin has been building beautiful websites for clients since 2007. After a few successful years of building static HTML sites, Collin saw the need to offer clients an easy solution to manage content and website settings on-demand, rather than needing to contact a developer to make adjustments.
Upon searching and testing several CMSs, Collin fell in love with WordPress, the world’s leading online publishing platform, and began focusing his skills on theme and plugin implementation, as well as CMS site strategy. Collin went on to help several small- and medium-sized businesses and organizations grow their businesses online.
In July 2012, Collin created Press Foundry, a Boston-based WordPress development agency, with a focus on beautiful, easy-to-use websites and unmatched customer experience. Press Foundry works with a wide range of clients, from local auto body shops, to financial management companies and professional sports organizations, and everyone in between. Collin loves working closely with each client to bring their ideas to life, and enjoys the variety of projects and industries he gets to work with.
Collin also enjoys being an active participant in the WordPress community, and has attended several WordCamps and local WordPress Meetups. He has spoken at WordCamp Chicago and has been a speaker at both the Boston WordPress Meetup and the Providence WordPress Meetup. He has also been a guest lecturer and hands-on workshop assistant in the PB403 Electronic Publishing class at Emerson College in Boston, MA.
Collin began piloting Project NOVUM in the summer of 2018 as a digital publication series. The brand consists of a podcast, long-form articles, and swag shop – for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs.
When not building the next awesome web project at Press Foundry or trotting the globe presenting tips and thoughts on WordPress, Collin is an active and avid runner and is working his way through the Abbott World Marathon Majors.
He enjoys adding a wide variety of music genres to his Spotify library, loves a good burrito, and is always on top of the latest and greatest technology devices. He’s also a strong proponent of productivity and strategy, and is obsessive about organization and process (in a good way!).
