Matt McArthur
Founder + Executive Director


Matt moved to Boston from Tucson, AZ in 2007 to attend Berklee College of Music. Needless to say: it was an adjustment.  Maybe it was the wealth of diverse and interesting people here, or maybe it was just the weather, but he quickly fell in love with Boston.  Like many of his peers he soon had to decide to stay or go.  "Go" meant seeking the creative community and infrastructure he valued in another city.  "Stay" meant building the community and infrastructure he wanted to see here in Boston.
Spoiler alert: he stayed.
