Matthew Epperson (pronouns he/him) is a southern cooperator based in Athens, Georgia. He grew up in Tampa, FL where he became a first-degree black belt (in Tang Su Doo, Aikido & Jujitsu) before relocating to Athens in 2008 for love and education.

He’s a graduate (2015) of the Masters of Management: Co-operatives and Credit Unions program through Saint Mary’s University.

He is the Executive Director of the Georgia Cooperative Development Center (est. 2017) and in that capacity he looks forward to providing assistance to many more startup and existing co-ops across Georgia. He also married his partner Lindsey in 2015 (it was a big year). Lindsey and he love to spend time cycling on rail-trails, hiking north Georgia mountains, and drinking hot tea while reading. He’s recently become a practicing Zen Buddhist and enjoys spending Sunday mornings with his sangha, the Athens Zen Group.
