Meet Munzee Munday: Matt McCann

Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. Over the next few weeks we’ll be showcasing members of Team Munzee so our players can get to know us a bit better. So each Munday (see what we did there?) check in to see a new member of Team Munzee and you decide if you trust the game in our hands. We may still call him The Intern, but this week’s Munzee Team member does far more than fetch coffee. Meet marketer Matt McCann!

Name and Title:
Matthew McCann, Business Development/Marketing

2014-06-18 10.20.52Where are you from?
I was born in Lake Havasu, Arizona and moved 4 times (California, New Mexico, and Kansas) before my family finally settled in Port Isabel, Texas when I was 6. I spent most of my life there before moving up to Dallas for college. I’ve been here for four years now.

Tell us about yourself:
Sports, craft beer, and technology are the things my life revolves around when I’m not in school (yes, I’m still attending UT Dallas) or at work. I love to travel, especially for sports, and I’m on a mission to visit all MLB ballparks. I also spend quite a bit of time binge watching movies and TV shows.

How long have you worked for Munzee?
About two months.

climbHow did you find Munzee?
I actually knew Rob (President of Munzee) and TJ (VP of Operations and Marketing) from Allen Americans (our local CHL hockey team) games. We met before either started working for Munzee, and when they joined the Munzee team, I learned more and more about it. When I was looking for work earlier this year, I inquired with TJ, interviewed for the job and started work a week later.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
For anyone that’s been to MHQ or met members of the Munzee team, one thing is apparent: this isn’t just a job. The members of the Munzee team are invested in the game and players. We may have laid back attitudes, but our work is top priority. We do everything we can to make the game better and grow our player base.

IMG_2088What are some of your other hobbies?
Tying back into what I said earlier, sports and technology consume my life. I can usually be found watching a sport (baseball, soccer, and hockey are my favorites) in my free time. I also play on an indoor soccer team. I’m also a huge SciFi nerd. I love Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Superman. While I’m watching any of these things, I’m usually tinkering on my computer, phone, or tablet. I started learning coding (PHP, Java, and HTML/CSS) for fun. Music is my other passion whether it be listening, making, or editing. I treat myself to concerts when I can, and I’ve edited music for teams and individuals competing in dance competitions.

Famous last words?
“This is who I am, right here, right now, all right? All that counts is here and now, and this is me!” – The Doctor

Changes around MHQ

In July 2011, Munzee was born from the blood, sweat, and tears of 4 co-founders. Aaron Benzick, Scott Foster, Chris Pick, and Josh Terkelson took an idea from Aaron and released it to the world. Within months the game was worldwide and gaining players at a rapid rate.  In June 2012, Rob Vardeman joined the team to work with the community and business relations. All members of Team Munzee worked as volunteers, nights and weekends, after working full time jobs during the day.  Over the next year, as Munzee grew Josh and Chris stepped down in order to focus on family and their full time jobs. Additional team members have been added, both full and part time. The game continues to evolve and grow. This weekend a big change occurred as Aaron stepped down as President of Munzee, with Rob named in his place effective immediately. Rob is honored and excited to lead Munzee forward into the coming years. We are thankful to Aaron for leading Munzee to this point and appreciate the work he placed into this game we all LOVE so much! Thank you Aaron!
