Hailing from the East Coast (New Jersey) and holding a BA in Language, Writing, and Rhetoric from North Carolina State University, Matt joined the legal cannabis industry in 2007 when his father received a diagnosis of Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Once he'd compiled enough evidence about cannabinoids as a viable treatment for his Dad, he decided the whole world deserved to know about the medical science. Over the next eight years, Matt dedicated himself to helping brands identify their voice, their audience, and their market position. Since 2011, Matt has worked with Dispensaries (Bloom Room SF, Medithrive SF, Berkeley Patients Group), Laboratories (CW Analytical Labs, Steep Hill Labs), Edible Manufacturers (Auntie Dolores, Bhang Chocolate), Medical Clinics (Greenway 420), Vaporizer Companies (Vaporfection, Vapir Vaporizers), Cultivators (Madrone), Distributors (River), and spoke as an expert of branding at Events like the NCIA Cannabis Summit and the Cannabis Economy.

He currently resides in Berkeley, CA.
