Co-founder / Contributing Editor

By day Matt is the co-founder of the LiveOAK Media Network where he blogs about environmental issues.  By night he is a humble public servant, working as a police officer in a small but busy rural town.

“Many people have told me that the cop/environmentalist is a strange pairing of interests, but I don’t think that it is.  I think it may seem that way  because most people that fall into just one of those camps tend to misunderstand what the other is all about.  For me, they are very similar pursuits.  As an environmentalist I encourage people to take personal responsibility for their actions, to be a good neighbor and committed member of their community, to understand and respect how their actions impact the people and places around them.  That’s the same things I do as a police officer.”

He hasn’t always been fighting the Green fight.

“…not too long ago I was hanging out with my 5 year old niece and I asked her what she wanted to do for the day. She said she wanted to go down to the park and pick up litter because it was making mother nature sad. I always talk to her about the importance of being kind to mother nature but I realized that besides not littering, I did very little, partly because I felt overwhelmed by weight of ‘Going Green’. The simplicity in her approach made me realize that ‘Going Green’ starts with action, and inspired me to start my journey to a more sustainable life.”
