Before joining Firewood, Matty held various creative gigs in the Bay area, from art director at a large corporation to a freelance creative consultant. Born and raised in Farmington, Connecticut, he moved to our neck of the woods in 2002 with a passion "to create weird things and spend time in the mountains." While indoors, he likes to draw, watercolor, and knit (in that order). Outdoor, he likes to fly fish, mountain bike, and backcountry ski—look at that backflip! It's no wonder that he has had two season-ending injuries in the last 4 years (both skiing). But never mind all that excitement. He knits! Our kind of guy.
