Originally from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Matt was pursuing a BS in Information Systems in Business Analytics and dual degree in Sustainability from the University of New Hampshire, Durham. On campus, he was a Lead Changemaker Coach, where he was one of a handful of students leading the Changemaker Fellowship. Additionally, he was a Paul Scholar, an Academic Tutor for the Athletic Department, a member of the UNH Jazz Band, and Associate with the Rines Angel Fund. During spring 2021, Matt participated in Semester in the City @ UNH working as a full-time intern with the UNH Foundation and Prime Buchholz LLC, where he developed an internal scoring methodology for the endowment fund to evaluate how sustainable their investments are regarding ESG principles.  

During the summer of 2021, Matt worked with Lonza Biologics, a leading global provider of integrated healthcare solutions, with a focus on enabling treatments that prevent illness. Specifically, his work with the Corporate Citizenship Team was to drive environmental, volunteering, sponsorship, and educational outreach projects onsite and in the local area. This work solidified the structure of the Corporate Citizenship program through incorporation of new communal and sustainable leads, assistance of sub-team’s long-term projects, and creation of stronger awareness for the Corporate Citizenship Program’s aims and impacts.
