Back to Our People

Matt oversees the flow of information between Coastkeeper, the public, and journalists. He is responsible for managing our website, social media pages, press relationships, and more. 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 justice, digital communities, and labor history. 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 Polaroids, and playing video games.
