Inspired by a trip to Spain in high school, Matt majored in Spanish and Environmental Studies at Dartmouth College. While living abroad as a teaching assistant, Matt began to see how his Spanish language skills helped him reach a deeper understanding of the environmental and sustainability issues facing Spain during the economic crisis. This connection led him to MIIS:

"I was hoping to connect both environmental policy and an international focus with a language component."

Matt recently graduated with a MA in International Environmental Policy and interned with the City of Monterey, contributing to its Climate Action Plan. Learn more about Matt's journey by listening to his podcast!
