Matthew grew up moving around the U.S. with his military family and loved being outside from a young age. That passion grew during his time at the University of Montana, where he studied journalism and environmental studies, and his service as an Environmental Action and Food Security Agent in Peace Corps Togo. After earning his Master’s in environmental policy and working at marine conservation nonprofits for several years, Matthew is now thrilled to join the Conservation Northwest team and help protect the Pacific Northwest’s incredible wildlife and wildlands.
