Matt Lara joined the GO Topeka team in July 2014 as the marketing coordinator. This being his first marketing position he was excited to jump right into the marketing world and economic development was a great industry to get a start in, finding an industry that is just now embracing digital marketing was exciting. When Matt isn’t trying new marketing techniques out, he spends time with his family. Matt has a husband, one son and several dogs. Matt spends several weekends and evenings at practices with his son. When not at practices, he enjoys running with his two Great Danes.
If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be?
It is difficult to be able to narrow it down to just one place. I would like to travel across Europe. Europe is made up of so many different countries that it would be great to be able to visit so many cultures, places and people all within a week.
Do you have a pet? If so, tell me about it.
I have several dogs. 2 great danes, chihuahua terrier mix and a few dachshunds.
What makes you laugh the most?
My family. We always have a good time, no matter what we are doing.
If you were a superhero, what powers would you have?
To fly! Wouldn’t it be nice to able to fly where ever you need to go rather than waiting in those long TSA lines!
