Our Team

Going on Dates, building the website, creating content, and documenting the journey is more than a one man job and who better to take it all on than the official 50 Dates 50 States team! Meet the crew that make the 50 Dates 50 States experience possible!

Matthew Wurnig

Matt is the creator of 50 Dates 50 States. Before he embarked on this journey Matt went to school at North Dakota State University where he studied sport management with a minor in business. After college, Matt landed a full time job with a baseball team where he was the Director of FUN and handled all of their entertainment.

After a lot of time, energy and effort into 50 Dates 50 States, Matt knew it was time for a new journey and decided to take it on full time. Matt’s mission is to continue to make people smile through his content and create opportunities for those who support him or have played a part in his journey.

Alex Winchell

Alex has been Matt’s friend for well over 10 years, and the two graduated high school together. Alex went to school at the University of Minnesota, not too far from North Dakota State University where Matt was in college, and the two frequently saw each other.

In high school, Alex created the online game Politics and War, and after college founded Yellowstone Digital Media, a web design company based out of Billings, Montana.

Currently, Alex is helping manage the website for Matt and 50 Dates 50 States.

Kaitlyn Mack

Kaitlyn is Matt’s sister who is actively helping 50 Dates 50 States as the head designer! She created the 50 Dates 50 States logo when the journey first began and actively helps in merch, business graphics and more behind the scenes activities! 

Kaitlyn currently works for the Bismarck Larks baseball team in North Dakota where she handles Sponsorship Experience and entertains fans as the on field host.
