Matt Karkut portrait

From 2014-2019, I worked as the operations manager for a rustic youth camp in northern Vermont. Across 54 acres of remote woodland foothills, I maintained land, facilities and designed new structures to integrate with camp programming.

After collegiate study and employment in the field of web development, I felt an arrestive call to be working with my hands in nature. The expanse of responsibilities in that role kept me engaged and busy. Most importantly, I was able to discover the work that keeps me happiest and driven: the process of design and build.

I’m drawn to the challenge of blending needs, functionality and aesthetics into practical solutions. I create answers through thoughtful design, attention to usability and consideration of resources.

Now under way with a career in timber framing, I still look to balance my breadth of skills—both in our world and the digital realm. The scope of work I can provide is vast—from consulting to design to building and development.

In launching my freelance, independent work, I’m excited to share my experience with you and your projects.

If you need a considerate set of hands on your idea, reach out for a chat. I am precise, thorough and professional in all work that carries my name.
