Matt calls San Francisco home and believes there's no better place on earth. On the rare occasion that he leaves The City, you're most likely to find him hiking & fishing in the Eastern Sierras, "hop-rocking" on the Yuba River, savoring a local wine in Boonville, or canoeing down the Nooksack River for the ForestEthics’ team in Bellingham’s annual Ski-to-Sea Race.
