Born and raised on the Central Coast of California, Matthew began a relationship with his natural surroundings at a young age. His love for hiking and surfing coupled with the Big Sur coast as a backyard eventually led to the discovery of the local jade culture.

What started as a hobby of looking for stones on the beach, eventually led to interest in transforming these treasures. Since then, countless hours of trial and error, a fine arts degree in sculpture, and opportunity to work with some of the world’s master carvers have given Matthew the tools to explore what it means to carve jade in California.
