Whether you’re in the studio, shooting landscapes in the country, or photographing an event, chances are you’ve been looking forward to the highly anticipated EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR Camera.

I had a Coney Nathan's Dog on the boardwalk when I went to NYC. The one rare time that a circler actually recognized me.

Welcome to my Google+ Profile! Feel free to call me Matt, Matthew or Rappa! I'm a comedic host interested in entertaining and being creative. 

Head of social media @TechTimes / @T-Lounge 

Owner of @Section10Media

Journalist focusing on Tech, Social Media, Humor & Entertainment:

Things I Love (or what circles you could put me in!) :
Digital Media
Hangouts On Air
Video Games
H.I.R.L. (Hangout In Real Life)
New York Giants
Random Fun

House of Cards | Orange is the New Black | Orphan Black | The Leftovers

Quick Who Am I :
Connected, knowledgeable, affable, quick-witted and generous.  Those traits have made Matthew Rappaport The Ultimate Host.  He is one of a few people of note who hosts Hangouts On Air on Google+/YouTube. Rappaport is known for leading The Huffington Post Google+, Hangouts, Youtube & Tumblr presence as well as his marathon shows with the most interesting people in the world.  He's done time on many a film and TV set, enough to get his SAG card. Which is convenient because he has a BFA in Musical Theater/Theater and studied in Oxford. Rappaport directed one feature, along with major involvement in shorts and web series.  The man acts for fun but makes a living as a host and social media crackerjack.  He can explain it to you and make it work for you, not against you. A native New Yorker, he travels to wherever he is needed, all around from Nashville to Vegas  & beyond!

I interview & find out about awesome people in Google+ Hangouts to bring you fun, funny, stories and +more! +Hangout Conversations since September 2011

In September 2011, after hanging out all summer, I started Hangout Conversations to bring Amazing Google Plussers to the rest of the world that I met and my own style of humor. After each show, I have the audience join us live on Conversations+.

Also, I made a mime and a therapist love story called  Yoko/Schmono that was shown at The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival.    

H.I.R.L. - #nychirl
In February 2012, I planned and held the 1st ever H.I.R.L. (Hangout In Real Life) Weekend in New York City. 100+ People traveled from all over the world to meet for the 1st time after many hours & laughs together in hangouts. People came from Austria, Vancouver, California, Texas and more to really high five & naturally break the hangout wall to sit on the same couch together! As part of the weekend I put together LIVE+ which was a concert featuring Singer/Songwriters +Heather Fay, 
+Ryan Van Sickle, +Daria Musk & +Ram Rich and we had a beautiful #WTCPhotowalk across the 
Brooklyn Bridge lead by +Daniel Enloe, A Super H.I.R.L. (Super Bowl) Party & amazing life changing memories!

Thusday February 2 - Monday, February 6, 2012

I enjoy this store as it is HUGE with tons of space and lots of parking. It does get crowded like almost all the APPLE Stores but when that does happen, you usually have the space you wouldn't normally have in small locations. It's the closest store to me and I wish one would open in queens soon! This is still my go to store unless it's not in stock and then Walt Whitman Mall.

I enjoyed the food especially being kosher and loved the fried onion! It's a nice place to eat in the area and we were able to find parking on the street. I was satisfied with the big portions they give!

Times Square theaters can sound sketchy but really I've been coming here for years (especially after work when I was nearby) for movies and enjoyed them all. I love that they show LATE NIGHT showings as sometimes I can't get there til late and there are more options overall. There is always something to see I haven't seen yet!

Massive selection of burgers and milkshakes to die for (literally haha) ! I like that they have the hugest burger that has a contest to go along with it which is fun. Onion Rings and Fries combo is definitely the way to go and I'd say the normal size on top of it is perfect for anyone .. most sizes. How anyone can actually eat the HUGE SIZED BURGER is beyond me?! :)
