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 (Honors), Politics, 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 weblog, 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 — a weblog with a readership of 1.5 million unique visitors per month.
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 founder and Chief Executive Officer of The Edition Collective, a project dedicated to the development of sustainable, dignified, and unique e-commerce concepts. Its portfolio includes Need, an award-winning men's retailer and lifestyle publication, and Foremost, a small-batch, affordable, and American-made brand.
Alongside The Edition Collective, Matt has been named one of the top five faces of technology in 2015, listed on several 30 Under 30 lists, named twice as one of Dallas' most fashionable people, and more. He also serves as a mentor for a variety of programs, including Tech Wildcatters (one of Forbes' top five worldwide startup incubators).
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.
