Between countless tie-dye mishaps and selling free-range kombucha at the local farmer’s market, Matthew finds peace by cross-legged on a mountaintop, having deep conversations with the breeze. When he’s not wasting his time attempting to catch his first fish, he is kept busy herding the cool cats that make up the Section Comms Team. If you meet this magical unicorn in person, be sure to ask him about his invisible Siamese twin, Roberta.

Website Adviser

Wauna La-Mon’tay Lodge

Born deep in the jungles of Uruguay and raised by a pack of jaguars, Joe Grant first ventured to the United States at the age of 9, where he competed in the World Concrete Eating Championship, setting the current record of 6 city blocks.

Joe was adopted in 2016 by the OA National Vice-Chief, Tyler Inberg, who taught Joe the ways of the Jedi, and the secrets of advising a Comms Team. Wielding this weapon of knowledge, Joe vowed he would make right the mistakes of his past and fix the Section website once and for all. To this day, his legend lives on in these stylesheets.

In his spare time, he enjoys long walks into the depths of volcanoes, stand-up paddleboarding on space whales, and creating thunderstorms with his mind.
