Let’s face it - at a school like MIT, many people like to hold leadership positions. We all wait anxiously for the end of spring semester so that we can attend the dozens of extracurricular activity election meetings that all last about a couple decades long, and Matt is no exception. As the treasurer for Hillel, the previous Next Act producer and this year’s Next Act director, the i3 video coordinator, and the
bitch costume coordinator for Dance Troupe, Matt’s resume is rife with positions of power. Matt also works as a tour guide for MIT, for which he recites the history of MIT in his special soothing voice, all while walking backwards.
Perhaps Matt’s crowning achievement, however, was that one time when he greeted guests at a party at Susan Hockfield’s home. Matt usually lays the smackdown on those who are tardy, but when Susan Hockfield herself was late, Matt was still happy to take her coat and direct her to the dining room for cocktails.
