Matt StrobelProgram Director
Matt has been a volunteer at KBBI since 2013, and a staff member since 2015.
Matt grew up in small town Eastern Massachusetts. Before finding a home in Homer in 2006, he lived in Seattle, San Francisco, Boston, and Santiago, Chile.
Prior to joining the staff at KBBI, Matt was a stay-home parent for four years; worked at a community health center in Homer; worked on various construction projects; and spent an entire season on a tender in False Pass, Alaska.
