Our goal is to inspire those who are already creating in St. Louis to do more, to do better, and to encourage the dreamers who are just beginning.

Matt Seilback

Matt Seilback is a husband, a father and a filmmaker. When he picked up his family’s video camera at 13, he fell in love with the magic of filmmaking. Matt works with Grain telling the stories of businesses, individuals and nonprofits through film. Matt, his wife and two kids love exploring St. Louis together and the adventures it has to offer.


John Pa

John is a proud native St. Louisan who needed adventure. So he packed his bags in his mid 20’s and gained experiences (and failures). He tripped into entrepreneurship and helped create Grain, Inc. Driven by his love for his hometown, he wanted to create a place where her stories could be told to inspire others and himself, thus the St. Louis Curator.
