Matt does “a little bit of everything,” including recently learning concrete work. He enjoys seeing the finished product, “pulling off the forms you built to see that your work is really nice. I like being able to look at a pile of wood then build something from scratch.”

Matt grew up on a family farm in Woodstock Valley, which has raised Hereford beef cattle since 1967. After daily work at WBA, he helps with the farm. He loves to bale hay. “It’s simple and repetitive but satisfying.”  Matt also has his own lawn care business on the side.  Matt says his colleagues think he’s funny because he sometimes mumbles to himself while he works, “I verbally work through a problem out loud as I think it through.”
