Who am I?
My name is Matt Rosler and I graduated from Penn in ’96, moved out to Los Angeles and immediately got involved in the Penn Club and in 2004 won Penn’s first Young Alumni Award of Merit. From that point on, I have always enjoyed connecting alumni and undergrads….First with Pennfest, the emerging film and music LA and NY festivals and now with this site. …Having been an actor and an aspiring TV writer myself, I have seen the need to connect our creative community.
Over the past 15 years, I have been a digital strategist, producing properties including The Apprentice sites plus a plethora of film and tv sites, contests, social media and videos for Disney, Fox, Warner Brothers, CBS, NBC, ABC and others. I currently run my own business working with brands to create and promote their brands online.
What is this site?
After running our 6th Pennfest (night of emerging Penn talent in film and live music), I realized that instead of just celebrating our alumni in one night, we should celebrate one another every day. At that point in 2007, I created and ran DuelingTampons.com which then in 2012 evolved into Penntertainment.com.
This site not only allows alumni and undergrads to learn about the latest news from our creative Penn community, but also allows users to connect via message boards and profiles.
