Resource Planner, Rural Land Stewardship
Matt has been with KCD since 2016. Originally brought on to coordinate grant submissions, Matt also supported and coordinated volunteer, education, and outreach events through the Engagement team. He has since moved over to the Food and Farm Team to make full use of his talents as a Resource Planner.
Matt graduated from UW with a bachelor’s in Political Science focusing on communications and the environment. He then served as a Peace Corps Volunteer supporting agricultural and community-based resource management in Tanzania and The Gambia. While coordinating program operations for UW’s Department of Laboratory Medicine, Matt earned a Master of Science from the UW School of Environmental and Forest Sciences studying agriculture and ecology. The cultural resonance and fantastic ecosystems of our region drive Matt to improve the relationship between people and the environment.
