A picture of Matt Doherty, smiling at the camera
Matt is the founder of Bara Studio, a local church leader, chaplain to the Bristol Flyers national basketball team, and proud father to the cutest kid you ever met.

Born and raised in Bristol, it's no surprise that Matt reflects so many of the attributes of the city, being a unique combination of creatively gifted, people focused, justice minded, and spiritually motivated. 

He's a loud and extroverted optimist, a capable team leader, creative thinker and public speaker. His combination of training and experience in faith-based organisations and the design industry has given him a unique skillset which he utilises when working with charities, ethical businesses and churches.

Even though he no longer has time to play for his local basketball club, he's still the chaplain to the Bristol Flyers, and he even coaches a juniors team on Tuesday evenings. The quality of basketball is decidedly average, but everyone is having a great time.
