Matthew is a recent resident of the Saint Paul area and has come to work with East Side Elders through the Right Track Plus program. He loves to learn new things and loves to help others, which has inspired him to become an educator once he finishes college.
He has experience with other nonprofits such as TIGERRS, a twin cities based organization that focuses on building community and providing resources for trans youth. And created a similar group during his time in High School, which included running an LGBT prom before the pandemic. He always tries to find new ways to build up new groups where he can.
His passions are psychology, politics, and creative outlets. He spends most of his free time writing or spending time with his fiance and dog. They all currently live on the east side of Saint Paul.
