Following high school, Matt achieved a degree in civil engineering from Lehigh University knowing it would allow him to work in the field of water and environmental resources. However, it wasn’t until Matt began working as a river restoration engineer in Montana that he truly was able to reconnect with his childhood adventures and pursue his passion for restoring rivers.
Matt’s role at RDG has evolved over the years from technical responsibilities to project management and staff mentoring capacities. Although he still enjoys involvement with engineering tasks and construction oversight, his strength is working with people, whether it is clients, agencies, landowners or professional colleagues. Matt is a firm believer that RDG’s high quality projects along with responsiveness and dedication to clients are the reasons for RDG’s success.
“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”
