Since 2005, Matt has enjoyed working with telescopes to capture astrophotography that inspires people to look up in the night sky. Matt completed his Master’s in Geology and Planetary Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh and was a research geologist for the Department of Energy where he focused on spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction, and electron microscopy.

Throughout his career, Matt wanted to integrate his interest in astronomical equipment, cameras, and observatories. In 2018, Matt transitioned out of the geology sector and joined PlaneWave as their Technical Services Manager. Matt oversees PlaneWave’s observatory installations program and works on marketing and sales efforts for sharing the story behind PlaneWave.
