Born and raised in the state of Washington, US. Finished his PhD in Narvik. Now Matthew has been living in Narvik since 2003.

Living: “Narvik is easy living. All the urban qualities you need. Schools, kindergarden, training and the city – everything is so close.”

Ice hockey: I train once a week in Nordkraft Arena with friends. And this year the local team won a promotion to the highest  level of Norwegian ice hockey. That probably means a packed arena every home game next season. 

The light: It´s actually more light here than back in the US. The sunsets lasts for hours due to the high latitude. And you never get tired of them.

Work: My PhD research was on wind power in cold climate – and now I work with wind turbines.
