Matt Peterson

While growing up in Minnesota, Matt spent much of his time outdoors, enjoying activities such as hunting, fishing, camping, and snowboarding. He traveled to Montana for numerous vacations while growing up and fell in love with the beauty and culture of western Montana, setting his sights on someday making it his home. Matt graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in civil engineering in 2010 and moved to Missoula in 2013 to work as a civil engineer with a focus on water resources. In the 10 years since moving to Montana, Matt’s appreciation for our state and our natural resources has only grown deeper. As a civil-water resources engineer, he works with clients throughout the state on projects that aim to make responsible use of- and protect our natural resources. His work has included replacement and preservation of irrigation infrastructure, stormwater management, development of transportation facilities, and remediation projects. Matt currently lives in Missoula with his wife and three kids. In his free time, he enjoys outdoor activities and spending time with his family.
