Matt Forman

Owner / Chief Techie

Since 2000, I have been working in the information technology field. My passion is the support of small businesses and local municipalities, in regard to their I.T. networks, security, and technology-driven business practices.

In 2006, I took over ownership and management of the Local Circuit and grew it from the one-man-band, which was doing break/fix computer repair, to the consistently growing 30+ client MSP that we are today.

Outside of the business world, I have worked alongside friends and supporters to provide clean drinking water projects and new water wells in developing countries around the world. I have spent time in places like Haiti, Kenya, and Malawi drilling wells, installing water purification systems and providing other social initiatives. In 2017, I founded the Gen1 Project, a 501(c)(3), where I currently serve as Executive Director. Our purpose is to empower the next generation with clean water initiatives, humanitarian aid, micro-finance projects, and various other advocacy programs which create and sustain life in developing nations.

I am a husband and father of three who enjoys time in the mountains, off-roading with my RZR, hunting, camping, and being outdoors. Downtime for me means getting out of the concrete jungle and off the beaten path.
