Born and raised in London, England, Matt Alexander currently resides in Dallas, Texas.
Educated at Southern Methodist University, Matt graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (with Distinction) in English Literature. He also pursued studies in History, Computer Science, and Law.
Following his graduation in May 2010, Matt dabbled in the corporate world at Southwest Airlines. In November 2011, in his spare time, he began producing this blog, OneThirtySeven — an outlet for his fascination with technology, design, and the written word. He was no stranger to this form of writing, having produced GCDemos.com between 2001 and 2004 — an early blog which garnered millions of readers in its lifetime.
In April 2012, catalyzed by the growing popularity of OneThirtySeven, Matt left Southwest Airlines and launched a boutique consultancy firm, Construct. Whilst there, he worked with the likes of Uber, American Express, and Ernst & Young.
During this period, Matt became a member of WELD, a creative community within Dallas' Design District.
Today, Matt Alexander is the President of Q Fifty One Digital, overseeing the development of e-commerce concepts for Q Clothier and Rye 51.
He was appointed to the role in October 2016 after Q Fifty One acquired his company, Edition Collective, which was a project dedicated to the development of sustainable, dignified, and unique e-commerce concepts. Its portfolio included Imprint (formerly Need), a curated retailer and lifestyle publication for men, and Foremost, a small-batch, affordable, and American-made brand.
Outside of his central role with Q Fifty One, Matt has been named as one of the top Texans Under 30, one of the top five faces of technology in 2015, named twice as one of Dallas' most fashionable people, and more. He also serves as a mentor and advisor to a variety of startups, accelerators, and the like.
Amongst many other outlets, Matt's writing and insight has been cited by CNN, The Financial Times, Forbes, Fortune, The Guardian, NBC, and PBS. He also sporadically produces columns for a number of lifestyle magazines in the U.S. and Europe.
