We’re glad to have Matt Vree joining us for our political transparency project in California’s 11th Congressional District. Matt will be working in the district to pull together a variety of data and information, with a focus on citizen contributions.
Matt recently completed his master’s degree from the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. This past summer, he worked as a fellow in the Carnegie-Knight Initiative for the Future of
Journalism Education, helping to create a large multimedia project that explored the lives and
responsibilities of the U.S. Military abroad. He reported specifically on the transformation of U.S.
presence in South Korea and how the Korean public was reacting to it.
Before graduate school, Matt worked for a number of years as an editor at the Marin Independent Journal. He has also written freelance stories for publications including the San Francisco Chronicle, Oakland Tribune and California magazine.
