Originally from Houston, Texas, Matt studied communication at Texas A&M University. After spending some time working for a startup in Austin, he packed up his car and followed the road west to a family-owned organic cattle ranch in northeast California. As a ranch hand, Matt was exposed to holistic and responsible ranching practices which ensured the well being of the animals as well as the health of the land for future generations. Matt joined the Project shortly after relocating to Bellingham. He’s interested in sustainable food systems, supporting small and local businesses, gaining new perspectives from others, and aviation.
Outside of the 9-5, you can find him getting lost on trails (very unintentionally), playing a variety of team sports, running along the bay, and eating enough food to effectively balance out the exercise.
