After living in China for a year as a child, Matt founded China Care Foundation at the age of 16 to offer orphaned children a brighter future. China Care has since raised over $14 million to provide surgery for over 1,200 special needs children, and has provided nearly 300 financial aid grants and 600 foster placements to children in need. China Care also supports over 60 high school and college clubs where thousands of students have been able to run community service programs, fundraise, and volunteer at the China Care medical home in Beijing, China. Matt was honored as one of Oprah Winfrey’s “People Changing the Lives of Children Around the World”, was one of Teen People’s “20 Teens Who Will Change the World”, and is the youngest recipient of the Fulbright Award for furthering peace and international understanding. In founding China Care, Matt fell in love with the process of building organizations of consequence.

After graduating from Harvard in 2006, Matt launched The Issue, an online media venture aimed at curating the best of the blogosphere. After merging The Issue into PBS’s world news program, Matt joined Harbor Point, one of the east coast’s largest urban renewal projects to revitalize the waterfront of Stamford, Connecticut. During his time there, the company developed seven buildings, and Matt was involved in every aspect of the development including financing, leasing, construction, and marketing.

Matt currently holds positions on the boards of both China Care Foundation and Half The Sky Foundation, and is an adoring alumnus of the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He is the founder, CEO, and Chief of Product of Endless.
