Story
Introduction
Matt has been called "one of regional Detroit's most progressive personalities."  He is a producer, founder of Thrive - a net zero energy consulting collaborative, host of Greenovation.TV, a contributor to the Environment Report on public radio, a lecturer, and the green renovation expert for Old House Web.  He is one of the most respected advocates and authorities on green renovations for existing homes.  Matt has a Mission Zero goal to eliminate the negative environmental impact of every home in America. 

His home was selected as one of USA Today's "Best Green Homes of 2010" and was praised as "Sustainable Perfection" by The Atlantic.  It is America's oldest and Michigan's first net-zero energy home, meaning it annually produces more energy than his family consumes.

He has been featured in the pages and on the airwaves of USA TODAY, Washington Post, Detroit Free Press, Miami Herald, Preservation Magazine, Travel Girl Magazine, Photon International, Solar Today, Hour Magazine, Fox Business News, NPR syndicates, NBC4, Paul W. Smith Show, Chris Holman Business Hour, and hundreds of online magazines including GOOD and TreeHugger.
