Matthew Sturz developed a strong interest in environmental stewardship at a young age, with a range of experiences from learning to walk in the Arnold Arboretum to practical shelter-building exercises at Mass Audubon day camp. Landscape architecture allows him to combine his love of the outdoors with interests in art and engineering. He brings to DM-LA a keen eye for detail and a background in both graphics development and construction documentation.

Outside of the office, Matt enjoys a variety of active pursuits, including ice hockey, snowboarding, and softball. He can also be found often buried in a book, whether fiction or learning in other areas of interest.
