Matt has been involved in public service, Democratic politics, and progressive causes for over a decade. He currently works for Blueprint North Carolina, a non-profit network of 50+ organizations working together to provide training and resource sharing for civic engagement and fostering a healthy democracy.

A native of Orange County, Matt is running to represent hometown interests in the General Assembly believing North Carolina has suffered a lost decade due to reactionary conservatives in the legislature. He believes that North Carolina is stronger and better when its people are healthier, better educated, safer, and with more money in their pockets and will work every day to ensure North Carolina delivers on the promises it has made regardless of race, gender, zip code, or sexual orientation.
