He grew up in Nashua, received his B.A. in communications and political science at Plymouth State, and then joined City Year New Hampshire as an AmeriCorps team leader in high-need, under-resourced public schools. Matt earned his master's of public administration at the University of New Hampshire's Carsey School of Public Policy and has spent more than a decade working in the nonprofit sector. He currently serves on the boards of Volunteer NH and Calling All Crows and chaired NH's Service Year Workforce Commission during the 2019-2020 legislative session.
