Hi, my name's Matt D'Avella and I’m a minimalist, filmmaker & podcaster.
I graduated college in 2010 with $97,000 in student loan debt and did the smartest thing I could think of at the time... I bought a brand new car.
Back then I was living in my parent's basement in New Jersey while I struggled to find happiness & make it as a professional filmmaker.
So over the next couple years I became obsessed with turning things around. I read self-help books & listened to every cheesy Tony Robin's audio tape I could find.
I discovered minimalism, redefined my idea of success, grew my business and within five years I paid off every last loan. Even the car.
