I grew up on the East Coast riding backyard jibs and the local hills. I was fortunate enough to go up to Vermont as a kid and ride Sugarbush, the best mountain on this planet (in my heart, I know there are better!) The terrain park was always where you could find me, even on a powder day!
Now a days, I am living in Vermont and focus most of my riding on Freeride! I compete on the North American Freeride Qualifier circuit and aspire to one day take my skills into coaching. With over 20 years of snowboarding notched on my belt, I have seen everything in the industry and am ready to help you!

Matthew was patient and listened to my needs
After some back and forth discussion we were able to identify products that were within my budget and met the goals for what I was looking for. I am excited to get back into snowboarding after 20+ years and Matthew helped make me aware of the options that exist. I am a heavy dude, currently at 280lbs.. Matthew helped make me aware of "volume shifted" snowboards and presented some options to me. He had personally tried the boards out and was able to make a solid recommendation. I am happy and I feel confident with the board that I selected.. FYI, that board is a K2 Party Platter, 157cm, and made for big dudes like me! I can't wait to get it on the slopes and take it for a spin!

Richard's experience with Matthew
Matt was super helpful and patient, and listened to my needs. He was able to narrow down some options and make me aware of products that I was previously unaware of.. As a result, I did end up purchasing a new snowboard and bindings within my budget and I am excited to see how the products perform!

Jennifer's experience with Matthew
It was awesome to have personalized help, and Matt was amazing! It that service is complementary, then I would absolutely recommend Curated, and Matt should get a commission for his excellent service. Being asked to provide a tip on top of buying very expensive equipment takes the curated experience down from 5 stars to just 3 stars. Matt was awesome, and should be recognized for that, but not by asking the customer to pay a tip.

Matt is a great advisor and on top of his game. He was always honest and gave helpful advice. He was very responsive to all my communications. He always kept me in loop when products became available as it was the end of season and everything was on sale but at the end he found the board I wanted at a great price.

Best retail experience I have ever had!
Honestly! Chatting with Matthew over the course of multiple days, both before and after purchase, was extremely helpful. He helped confirm some of my own research and presented new options and great deals. I know I can continue to ask him questions as I break in the new gear or shop for something new.

Matthew created the perfect first impression of Curated!
Matthew made me feel comfortable right from the beginning. He demonstrated a knowledge and passion for snowboarding, explained how it all works and then worked with me to find the best options. And more important, he rolled with some unexpected changes and remained responsive and helpful throughout.

Matthew was friendly and insightful
I really appreciate the quick insight Matthew shared with me on the sizing and style of the board i was looking at. I was not sure whether or not to size up or down for the Bataleon Camel 2 and Matt gave me confidence in my decision. Curated offers a great medium for making a purchase with confidence. I would recommend this experience to anyone looking to purchase their first snowboard, or adding yet another style board to their quiver. Thanks Matthew!

Knowledgeable & Easy Going
Tons of questions that I had went answered with ease which ultimately led to me finding the perfect board. Matthew has experience in all riding conditions, my situation is the North East but had interests in boards that were better suited for powder conditions, so Matthew gave valuable opinions on my not-so-suitable selections. Thanks, Matthew!!

Heather's experience with Matthew
This was awesome. I got great service from the comfort of home. It was nice to be able to tap into Matthew’s expertise. I could ask questions without any distractions. He helped me make decisions that would otherwise be overwhelming if I tried to figure it all out myself. Love this!

Matthew is awesome!
I came into the snow board market after 3 years of using old used stuff and I told Matthew what market I was looking in and he found option’s immediately, ranging with great boards that suited my personality. Couldn’t thank Matthew enough for helping me get my Board and Boots for the season!
