Communications Manager


1:  Who are you?
Bert Macklin, Private Eye. JOKING, I'm Mat Gilderman. I'm a huge fan of funny people, nice people, and dogs. I like a bunch of other stuff, too. 

2:  What do you do?
I do all the communications for Kirby! That involves like 500 different things and constant chaos (which I LOVE), and I'd be MORE THAN HAPPY TO BORE YOU WITH THE DETAILS. Here goes: My beliefs in sentence structure is that *GONG* Okay, I won't bore you with the details. But yeah, I do communications for Kirby.

3:  What's your favorite part of your job?
In my career, I've been a copy editor, copywriter, newspaper editor, magazine editor and digital media specialist. Doing communications for Kirby means I get to do ALL that stuff...AND work with students. Short story long, best part of my job is working with students.

4:  What's the best meal you've ever had?
Like 10 years ago, my wife and I spent an entire day walking around in 90 degree heat at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida. When we drove home that night I was STARVING from not eating much all day, and wanted some kind of "home cooked meal." So we ate at the Bob Evans (It's like the Perkins of the south) in Bradenton. Anyway, I had crepes with strawberries, sausage, toast and like 5 other things. It was the most delicious meal EVER. I have horrible taste in food, FYI.  

5:  If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
Tons of places! I'd really love to visit China.
