Matthew began studying and practicing meditation in the Spring of 2013. His initial intention to experience peace, clarity and compassion in everyday life sparked his practice and mentorship with Paul Baranowski. He loves the adventure of life and delights in connecting with people with authenticity and joy. In addition to meditation, Matthew facilitates and actively trains in Nonviolent Communication, positive masculinity, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. His core aspiration is to help increase awareness of mindfulness, and the mindful use of technology, and to help create and share practices to support people as they mature and integrate their digital, material, and spiritual lives.

Matthew is a Content Strategist at 7shifts: Restaurant Scheduling and is responsible for producing original, thoughtful, SEO optimized content to increase organic website traffic and conversions.
