Originally from the Northeast, Matt Benevento recently moved to Austin from Buffalo, New York. Matt studied at the University at Buffalo (the largest campus in the State University of New York system), graduating with a degree in English. While in school, Matt worked as an editor for the university magazine.
Following graduation, Matt put his writing and editing experience to good use by working for the digital marketing arm of Hearst Media. In his role as a Digital Quality Analyst, Matt proofread and edited hundreds of websites and digital marketing campaigns. Matt then moved up to the SEO department as an SEO Strategist, where he learned advanced search engine optimization tactics and strategies and eventually became a senior member of the SEO team. We’re glad to have Matt building upon all of those experiences and skills as an SEO Strategist here at Practice Cafe. Together with our digital marketing team, Matt analyzes data to evaluate SEO successes and to identify opportunities for more progress.
Fun fact: Matt used to work as an electrician with his dad over the summer. Their most memorable project was building the electrical infrastructure for 30 new cottages at Allegany State Park in New York. Their work included digging and laying over 2 miles of high voltage primary distribution lines and secondary lines. Not bad for a three-man team!
Matt prefers to spend his free time hanging out with his wife, Rachel, and their two dogs, Dex and Red. They enjoy going on family hikes and exploring the Austin area. Matt is an avid PC gamer and competes in tournaments for the digital card game Hearthstone. Though generally not into traditional American sports, Matt enjoys watching E-sports and closely follows European football (soccer).← Back to the Team Page
