Matt was drawn to architecture in college, appreciating the balance of art and science. His design process similarly takes a scientific approach, responding to the needs of each project through trial and error to find the best solution. Matt appreciates that each project brings its own unique challenges and enjoys the iterative process of problem solving.
Matt’s work includes 1 De Haro, the first mass timber building in San Francisco to use CLT and the first multi-story building of its type in California. He is an established thought leader on mass timber, and an advocate for the environmental, economic, and socio-cultural benefits of its use in construction.
A Bay Area native, Matt has gained a greater appreciation for building through DIY improvement projects on his home is Marin, where he lives with his wife, daughter, and their dog Pico.
