Matt utilizes social media, emails, press releases, photos, blogs, and more to spread awareness of the awesome work that Coastkeeper staff does every day. Before his work at Coastkeeper, Matt earned a B.A. in American cultural studies and communications at Cal State Fullerton. He led the college radio station at CSUF for several years, establishing a podcast network and massively expanding the organization’s reach on campus.
He is currently continuing his education in an American cultural studies graduate program where his research focuses on environmental humanities, digital communities, and pop culture. Above all else, he strives for equity in all professional and personal spaces (especially in outdoor action sports). When he isn’t studying or working, Matt enjoys shopping for vintage items, traveling, snowboarding, experimenting with film photography, and playing video games.
