Q&A with Matt Luther

  • What is something you have learned from your work and collaborations?
    I mainly help with technical issues, but working at the PPC has helped me realize how much work and data goes into providing the public with information to help them.
  • How do you think the Center’s work impacts Nebraskans? 
    It brings awareness that Nebraskans face difficulties every day. Sometimes you think it is only the big cities/urban areas, but the issues occur here as well.
  • What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?
    Only boring people say they're bored.
  • What/who inspires/motivates you?
    Elon Musk; he has a strong work ethic with good intentions, and uses what he has to help shape the future.
  • What is one challenge have you faced in your career and how did you overcome it?
    The transition from working remotely for almost 2 years to working in an office was a little hard, but the Center made it very easy and was very welcoming.
