About + Contact

About National Machine. You build communities and homes. We tell stories of places and spaces and people. Let's work together.

Based in Minneapolis, willing to roam.


Matt Blum and Katy Kessler are the founders of National Machine. Along with a team of incredibly talented designers and developers, we are a decidedly non-mechanical enterprise, despite the many calls we receive asking about safety protocols.

Our background is in media (photography + video) and building web applications. We focus on stories, taking a human-centered approach that appeals to the emotional side of home buying and community building. Our client partners focus on bringing people together: they are real estate developers, builders, hotels, religious organizations, family-owned outdoor festivals.
