Chemical Engineer, EIT
Matt was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. Being outdoors has always been part of his life, whether it be fishing, mountain biking, snowboarding, kayaking, hiking, or just general adventuring. Matt also enjoys traveling internationally visiting the world. After high school he graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder with a degree in Chemical Engineering. During his time at university, he interned at a local Anchorage fabrication facility where various pig launcher and receiver modules were constructed for Prudhoe Bay.
After graduating college, Matt was employed with Schlumberger Surenco in Colombia. There he worked with the well services department performing multiple oil and gas well cementing jobs and coiled tubing operations. He was primarily stationed in the Casabe Oil Field near Barrancabermeja in the Santander department. Other places in Colombia he worked were in Puerto Boyacá and Villavicencio. After spending time in the heat of Colombia, he decided it was time to return to Alaska.
Matt joined Taku Engineering in 2012. During his time with Taku Engineering, he has been supporting a variety of clients from oil and gas to local governments. He has worked as a facility engineer tasked with operations and maintenance support, regulatory compliance, process engineering and safety, and long-range planning. When he is not working, he is always planning his next adventure.
