The Picture Interview series is brand new and launches today with Matt Wilson (@mattwilsontv), the Co-Founder of Under30Media. The concept of this series is to let interesting people share their favorite smartphone photos with you along with a brief description to give you a peek into their lives, literally. Matt was a great inaugural choice as his office is literally the world-at-large. Be sure to check out the newly launched Under30Finance.com and Under30Careers.com. You can catch up with Matt on their Under30Experiences Microfinance Surf Camp to Nicaragua this April.
What does your workspace look like and what technology can we see there?
I only have two important pieces of technology in my life. My MacBook and my iPhone. I’m a minimalist so my apps aren’t crazy. I stick to the basics for social media promotion for our Under30Experiences entrepreneur travel brand. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare. For travel I use WhatsApp, most of my friends and family are on iMessage, I’m an iBook reader, Skype, and Google Translate.
Seriously, just my two Apple products get the job done wherever in the world I am. I also operate with some really cheap headphones that hurt my eardrums.
What’s the most inspiring photo you took on your phone in the last 12 months?
I just returned from Costa Rica on our Under30CEO GREEN Business Tour and snapped this pic of our group ziplining in the jungle. I’ve been to seven countries in the past 6 months and take pictures exclusively from my iPhone. This picture inspires me not only because it was such an exotic location, but because we brought together such an inspired group of awesome young people.
What’s the absolute coolest place you’ve taken a picture of in the last 12 months?
This picture is one of my favorites from our Under30Experience to Iceland. This little island in the middle of the North Atlantic literally looks like the surface of the moon. I really want to be there next time one of these volcanoes erupts.
