About Me

My name is Matthew Jones and I'm a junior at Cab Calloway School of the Arts in Wilmington, DE. I major in Digital Media with special interest in photography, web design, and graphic design. I currently hold a 4.8 GPA (4.0 unweighted), and participate in many activities around school, mainly revolving around the National Honor Society and Communication Arts Honor Society (a section of the nationally-recognized National Art Honor Society).

Outside of school I do a few different activities, but my biggest interest is Irish Dancing. I am a 3x World Champion Irish Dancer and hold many other regional and national titles. I dance with the Emerald Isle Academy of Irish Dance and am a Dance Captain for the school's Performance Troupe. I perform and compete locally and internationally, including being an artist in residence at The Whitebriar Restaurant in Avalon, NJ in the summers.

In my free time I work as a freelance webmaster, web designer, photographer, and graphic designer. One of my most prominent jobs is developing and maintaining the Emerald Isle Academy of Irish Dance website.
