The Quick & Dirty
Hi there. Name’s Matt. Or Doogs, if you prefer.
Since this is an About page, let’s get straight to it.
I’m 30. Married. Dad to an adorable little boy (and come May 2010, a baby girl) and four dogs.
During the day, I’m an associate creative director at a social media agency in Austin, TX.
In my free time (such as it is), I write. Or wrote. Or try to write. Historical fiction, mostly. It’s a nice contrast to the digital content and social media strategeriness that I live with every day.
I also get all interested in cars, photography, technology, politics, history, movies, and knitting. Actually, scratch that last. I can barely tie yarn in a knot.
What’s the Deal With Doogs?
Last name’s McDougall. But three syllables is a lot, and everyone always forgets that second “L”, so people started calling me Doogs. And it stuck. To the point where our CEO calls me Doogs.
“Damned if you DOOGS”?
Play on the popular idiom “damned if you do, damned if you don’t”. But you already knew that, didn’t you? I hope you did. Because if not…wow.
