Matt is an Eastern Oregon transplant, having found his way here after a long journey from the Pacific Coast of Northern California. He first stumbled upon Oregon at a student at Reed College, in Portland, and then worked as a fish biologist for a large Renewable Energy Developer before leaving the big city and making his way to greener, and thankfully drier, pastures. In Eastern Oregon, he worked for the Department of Fish and Wildlife for a time, but finally found a truer calling with Wallowa Resources. As a Renewable Energy Program Manager for WR Community Solutions, Inc., Matt is always looking for ways to bring new energy projects into fruition, for the benefit of the community and the environment. Matt splits time between the Pacific Northwest and East Africa, where he manages community development and agriculture projects. In his spare time, he can usually be found messing about in boats on some far-flung river, or at least out and about enjoying the woods and smelling the flowers.
