Matt Hurst joined the UCLA Luskin School in August, 2012.
Promoting the School in a variety of ways, Matt works to place faculty and staff experts in various media outlets while also writing and editing press releases and stories for the Luskin School website. He is the director of the School's video department and oversees all of the School's online presence – from the official website to its social media interaction. He also is the co-editor of the Luskin Forum, the School's bi-annual magazine.
Prior to joining UCLA, Matt worked for four years at his alma mater, UC Santa Barbara, in athletics communications. That was preceded by nearly a decade as a journalist, the crescendo of which he served as a traveling beat writer covering the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for four seasons.
