About me: my life in lists

Me:

Hey! I’m Matt. I am an incoming freshman at Harvard University, interested in all things computer science, VC, government, and entrepreneurship.

 

What I ‘m up to:

This summer, I am working as a Data Science intern with the USDA National Agricultural Library and as a Business Development Intern with ZGC Boston (a Cambridge-based startup incubator and PE firm).

 

Additionally, I have been getting involved in a variety of other projects and roles.

 

I developed and pitched a startup concept: Wulf.

 

I have been writing as a fellow for the Harvard Political Review (HPR)—new articles coming soon! Additionally, I serve as a Junior Director of Corporate Relations for the Harvard College Japan Initiative. With HCJI, I consult for GPI US as a lead discussion leader.

 

One of the favorite things I am working on is my Harvard SPARK project in collaboration with the Burlington Science Department. I am assisting to create a shaded seating area for the Burlington Community Gardens. If you are interested in helping out, feel free to contact me!

 

Other than that, I have been enjoying my time: playing tennis and with my dog Petey.

 

What I have done:

    • I founded iRemember, a 501c3 social enterprise platform for people to record their perspectives to major historical events.  My startup is a recipient of the Riley’s Way Foundation Call for Kindness Fellowship and is currently working with senior centers events.

       

      I love to promote STEM opportunities for young students and facilitating passions around technology.  I was an organizer for MAHacks, a Massachusetts-based hackathon for high schoolers to come together and build awesome stuff. I was also on the  MIT Teen Programming Council , where we plan events for youth to meet researchers and learn about topics that create paths to career passions.

       

      Off of the same tangent, I love to be in the outdoors.  I am an Eagle Scout and have been part of scouting since first grade.  I was a Mystic Watershed Ambassador and help run community events to give awareness to our local watershed. (In my free time, I love to kayak and camp) 

       

      Something I was also passionate about is the role of young people in activism. I ran a podcast called “A Soon-to-be Voter’s Guide” that you should definitely check out :).  I was selected to be one of 25 high schoolers from across the nation on the  Harvard Making Caring Common Youth Advisory Board, and I had a great time talking to other young leaders and creating administrative changes that empower teens to initiate positive changes. 

       

      I also like to code and create programming projects.  You can check that outhere.

       

      After 12am, I love writing poems and short stories.  

       

Fun facts:

    • I am double jointed (helps with backstroke, but not with pushups.)
    • My last name sounds like the pokemon tentacool
