Passionate about equity, service and justice, Matt leads the planning, landscape architecture and urban design efforts of our Cleveland, Ohio office. He thrives on elevating people, communities and the environment, and crafting elegant planning and design solutions that positively impact our world.

Over nearly 30 years, Matt’s portfolio of projects spans active transportation, airport planning, aquatic and upland restorations, botanical gardens, cemeteries, children's places, green infrastructure, K-12 and higher education, mixed-use developments, complete and green streetscapes, parks and urban design. He uses innovation, flexibility and a focus on excellence to deliver projects that delight owners and users.

As a landscape architect, Matt has a special interest in improving the health of people, communities and the environment through active transportation. Since joining OHM Advisors in 2016, he has been involved in the Whiskey Island Connector project for Cleveland Metroparks, the Downtown Hudson Veterans Trail Study for Hudson, Ohio, the Harvard Road Complete Streets Study for Newburgh Heights, the Mohican Valley Corridor Plan for Ashland, Holmes and Knox County Engineers, and the Heights to Hudson Trail for the Village of Boston Heights. Matt has also presented at various planning conferences on “The Value of Urban Trail Connectivity” and the Scranton Flats Towpath Trail and Restoration project in Cleveland.

What a wonderful opportunity designers of built and natural environments have to improve all aspects of people’s lives. I accept and enjoy this responsibility every day.
