Matt is Erica's partner and Rare Bird’s builder and crafter who makes the stores infrastructure beautiful, functional and cool. Matt built our studio (all three iterations), our new wooden sign, cash wrap, fixes just about anything and dreams up new crazy cool ideas and solutions for the shop. He also cameos as the men’s clothing buyer as well as our in house graphic designer. Matt is an artist born and raised in Oakland, creator of MAKBUILT "funk-tional" art, furniture & those sweet retro luggage boomboxes we have in the store. Check out his work at Makbuilt.com. When Matt's not at Rare Bird he's building homes in the Bay Area, creating in his home studio with his lady, or out in nature or hangin' with his favorite Siberian Husky friend.
