About Ed Mattson

Continuing to build my career in Architectural Design

Ed Mattson
My Father was a Contractor and a Master Carpenter. When I was 5 years old he handed me a hammer and a handful of nails, pointed to a pile of scrap wood and said "Get to work!". I learned from a Master to become one myself. Working with him up thru high school I learned the Trade. I was deciding on my future, Architecture in one hand and Art in the other; I choice Art and proceeded to Study Film, entering the Film Industry in NYC as well as working in the Art Industry doing installations. Moving to San Francisco I fell back on my trade and worked on designs and builds of custom furniture and installations, high end carpentry and contracting. My design work peaked my interest as I learned Web-Media and Graphic Design and started my own company Paperdoor in 2006. Architecture however, was not forgotten and stilled loved. In 2010 moving back to NJ for family I bought a fixer. I designed the plans for the renovation, built a 3D model and started the project of restoring the house I live in today. Shortly after an opportunity came up and I found myself working an apprenticeship with Jeff Schneider Architects of NJ doing AutoCad drafting, 3D renderings and Photography. I am looking forward to taking my career even further.
