In his effort to support the community of Manhattan Beach, Matt served as President of the Board of Directors for the Roundhouse from 2004 through 2013. During that time he led the all-volunteer Board to a financially stable organization and expanded the educational reach of the Roundhouse beyond the city of Manhattan Beach. Residing here since 1978, he’s almost a local. He originally started with the Aquarium as a volunteer in the summer of 2003 while taking time off between a 20-year stint as Vice President / Pioneer Artists with Pioneer Electronics’ entertainment division and his current position as Programming Consultant for Eagle Rock Entertainment, a London based Entertainment Company recently purchased by Universal Music Group. Matt has a liberal arts degree from Occidental College with an emphasis in Math, Science, Music and The Arts. He gets a great feeling of accomplishment seeing the improvements in the cleanliness of Santa Monica Bay and knowing the Roundhouse has contributed to that goal through its educational programs.
