About Matt Roach
I was born in Texas where I grew up and went to college and grad school. I met my wife at SMU and we have two kids who are 8 and 5. I got my Master’s degree from Texas A&M in the field of computer graphics. Now, we live in New York where I work with Blue Sky Studios making animated feature films. I am an Effects Technical Director during the day. I make the clouds, waterfalls, dust and snow that you see in films like Ice Age, Rio, Epic, Horton Hears a Who, etc… In my free time, what little there is of it, I play the guitar and write. I have pretty eclectic taste in music, which explains my appreciation of Enation AND Metallica, Fall Out Boy, HIM, even J-Rock.
My JJ + Enation story
I first ran into Jonathan Jackson in college. My girlfriend (now wife) was an avid General Hospital fan since she grew up watching it with her grandparents. She introduced me to it and we ended up taping it everyday and watching it at night after class. When someone recommended Enation to me on Facebook, I immediately recognized Lucky Spencer and decided to give them a listen. The band names they checked in their bio made me a bit wary since I am not a fan of U2, Coldplay, Bob Dylan or Leonard Cohen, but their music was much fresher than their influences thankfully. I liked their sound quite a bit, and my wife thought it was cool to see what ‘Lucky’ was up to these days.
