Danny Matteson

Producer/Editor

A connoisseur of fine dunks with an unusually high tolerance for SyFy originals, Danny is a multimedia journalist with an affinity for stories — be they science, health, tech, innovation — that exemplify the finer points of human creativity and ingenuity. Or, if that’s not available, memes and Florida crime stories will do. When not at work he can be found debating the finer points of dramatic television shows and watching basketball — normally with his cat.
