Matt O’Meilia
Senior Copywriter

Matt has been writing copy since September 1988, but to this day he is still undecided about the use of the Oxford comma. Oh, he’ll use it on some occasions, depending on the context, but other times he considers it unnecessary. Matt thinks deeply about punctuation, which makes him endlessly fascinating.
