Matthew Dera

I'm in South Jersey at the edge of the Pine Barrens. I'm an arborist and tree climber. In the past I've worked in a variety of fields, and almost consider myself a jack-of-all-trades. I've worked as a receptionist at a tattoo shop, as a designer, at a textile printing shop, in the trees, and on a boat, to name a few.

I have a deep concern for the state of our oceans and planet, I'm strongly opposed to single use plastics. Check out my non-official non-profit by clicking that facebook page link below -Good Beach Bad Trash-

One day, when I grow up, I want to go and help Conservacion Patagonica revert national parks back to pristine wilderness. But maybe on a more realistic note, I want to go back to school and start working in environmental conservation or marine biology.
