Matt Szczur made his MLB debut in 2014 playing for the Cubs, but did you know he also excelled at college football? I invited him to discuss his career in sports and find out how he went from a professional baseball player to an NFT artist.
We chat about his path through professional baseball, the role art played in his life, how he sold art to baseball legends like Mark McGwire, and how he saved a little girl’s life by donating bone marrow.
Matt also shares his artistic process, how he comes up with out-of-the-box ideas, and why it’s important to own your personal journey.
