Born in New Hampshire, Matt is an authentic New Englander. After graduating from high school, Matt gave two years of his life to the United States Army in the Artillery division.
After the military, Matt began to give his summers and fall to The Wilds of New England as part of the Maintenance/Landscape crew. Matt has faithfully served with a weed whacker in his hands and a smile on his face for 5 years. Though his work takes him to the ends of the campsite, no job is too big or too small to deter Matt from his faithful, joyful service.
