A lifelong junkie for all things creative, Angel began her earliest artistic career by trying to imitate Bob Ross with watercolors, taking art classes of all kinds and spending hours creating a mess in her neighbors clay art studio. This led her to pursue a degree in both graphic and web design. The evolution of the web design world has led to a natural progression and immersion into the internet marketing arena. This unexpected love serves as an outlet that fills her need to always be working on a project and her love of a challenge.

Content
& Manager
| Alysse Grubbs

As Matek Media’s content writer and manager, Alysse believes the adage ‘the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree’ is very fitting. Growing up, her mother was the PR & marketing director for a Fortune 500 company and throughout the years Alysse would help her edit different projects, newsletters, etc. From there, a passion for writing and editing lit the path to becoming a newspaper writer and yearbook editor in high school. That yearbook editor kid lives on today as she catches herself mentally editing anything she reads. Taking this expertise from literal paper to the world of website content and development has been an exciting challenge for Alysse and she enjoys all the growth and development that the cyber-world has to offer.
