Matt Ochs
Civil Engineer

Matt is a licensed FL Civil Engineer new to the Tampa area as of mid-2018 with 8 years of professional Civil project experience throughout the south and central Florida regions. Matt graduated from the University of Florida in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Civil and Coastal Engineering. During his tenure at UF, Matt was an active member of the Florida Blue Key Leadership Honorary, Theta Chi Fraternity, and the University Hockey Club. Matt also served for years as the Vice-Chair and Chairman of Student Government Productions.

Matt is originally from Illinois but moved to Florida with his family in the late eighties where he grew up in the Naples area. After graduating from UF, Matt returned to southwest Florida to work for a full-service civil design firm he had interned with the prior summer. Over the course of the next 6 years, Matt served in a range of design, consultation and project management roles, earning his Professional Engineering licensure along the way in 2016. Later that year, with an itch to try something new, Matt left Florida for the bay area of northern California to work on a mobile application development project with former college colleagues before joining a Civil design firm in San Francisco. A couple years later, wanting to be closer to family, Matt took advantage of an opportunity to resume his professional career in Florida and moved to the Tamp Bay area.

In his free time, Matt loves staying active at the gym, playing golf, and loyally following his hometown Chicago sports teams, especially the Blackhawks.
