Matt Palmariello, Project Manager:  While pursuing a Recreation Management degree at the University of New Hampshire, Matt was introduced to paddling and it heavily impacted his life.  For the next few years he guided sea kayaking trips in the summer, and worked on skiing events in the winter, eventually transitioning to Utah to work with the non-profit US Ski & Snowboard Team.  Each summer he migrated to California where his paddling interests evolved from sea kayaking to open canoeing to standup paddling.  Today he lives in Rome, Maine.
