In that role, Matt coordinated the full spectrum of national security policy. Before that he served as Senior Director for Asia, where he led the administration’s work on the Indo-Pacific region, and in particular its shift on China policy.

He then fought in Iraq and Afghanistan as a U.S. Marine during three combat deployments between 2007 and 2010. Following active duty, Matt founded and led an Asia-focused risk consultancy and ran Asia research at an investment fund in New York.
