Matt joined the Millcreek team in Autumn of 2020 as a Growing Coordinator in the IMPACT perennials department. In January of 2022, Matt was promoted to Growing Crew Leader for Annuals & Shrubs, Herbs, and Propagation, a new role at Millcreek. He will work directly with Section Growers across the three departments as well as other full-time and seasonal staff members to care for and grow the best plants possible!
Matt grew up in Columbus and graduated from Ohio State University in the Spring of 2015 with a degree in Environmental Policy & Management, focused in water conservation. Throughout his time at OSU, the curriculum influenced Matt to consider a career in horticulture in addition to other avenues he had considered. Since then, Matt has dedicated his time to numerous local organizations as both an educator and horticulturist, including the Franklin Park Conservatory, Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed, and most recently with McCullough’s Landscape & Nursery as a plant health care specialist.
When not at Millcreek Matt devotes most of his time to music, yoga, climbing, ingesting art & information, and taking care of his plants at home.
