Matt Connell was born in Wisconsin and grew up in the Chicago area. Since he was a young man, Matt has had a deep interest in beautifying common deathcare practices. This, combined with his passion for protecting our environment, led him to taking part in the green burial movement. He spent many years in the advertising industry, but today, he's spreading the green burial message across the Upper Midwest, including his new home in the Twin Cities. He's hoping to not only teach these values to his two young sons, but to create a more responsible approach to deathcare, and a stronger connection with nature, for everyone.
