”My husband and I worked with Matt for two months on the design of our family aircrete dome home and it was such a great experience! Matt was very professional, a great communicator, so creative, clear, and concise. We also enjoyed getting to know about him and his family a bit during this time. On top of making our vision of a family dome come to life, he had so many great suggestions to make our future home more cohesive, comfortable, and child-friendly. We cannot wait to see his designs come to life as we build, and then eventually live in that beautiful space. We would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to design and build their dream aircrete dome!”

"Matt is a pleasure to work with, not only because of his charming and intelligent personality, but because of his expertise and passion in his field. He quickly tuned into our environment and vision and was able to come up with several diagrams to bring our project to life. Matt is effective, efficient, and highly creative with experience that gets to the point. I highly recommend working with him if you are interested in permaculture planning or alternative building."

"When we moved into our house the garden was a concreted mess of holly bushes and over grown roses. We wanted to clear it and make a garden that our two young children could play in, explore and grow up with. Matt came to our house and spent the day walking around the garden, sketching ideas, talking to us about what we wanted until we had a plan we all agreed on. The ideas he came up with were imaginative. He used materials we felt comfortable with, ones that were tactile and safe for the children, but also natural and recycled. This was important to us. He also used techniques from his previous Permaculture projects that produced quick, effective and uniquely beautiful features in our garden."

I have been working with Matt for 8 months, I reached out to him for help in focusing my life wishes and plans. Because he genuinely lives his mantra of "head, heart and hands," I know that his guidance and probing are grounded in the integrity of his own life's work. He is firmly rooted in both the spiritual and material planes so that he can dream and vision with me and then help me focus on what I need to do to get there.

“In 2017, Matt, founder of Holistic Progressions, came to our primary / secondary school to design an outdoor classroom / theatre for us in our gardens.
We commissioned him to design a large, airy, iron dome, which would eventually be clad in creeping, flowering plants, creating an enticing shaded area for performance, reading and other learning.
Matt's sensitivity to the needs of our pupils and our environment was immediately evident.
He understood that we needed an outdoor space that was elegant and natural, one that would weather well, and one that would feel magical to children and young people.
He drew up plans and then carried them out with his team of metalworkers, working to a high specification of workmanship.
Five years later, the dome-theatre elicits admiration from visitors to the school and even passers-by.
It is both strong and very airy, consisting of beautifully ageing iron and a range of lovely flowering creepers. Being under or near the dome is very inspiring: it has become much more than the sum of its parts, providing our children and young adults with lovely daily opportunities to read, perform or just sit and reflect.
It is my own favourite place in school - both useful and full of natural beauty."
Audrey Reeder, UK - Headteacher, The Olive Tree School, Spain
"I have known Matt for several years both through working together at a sub tropical Permaculture project and in a learning context where I acted as Tutor for Matt during the first year of his Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design. I am inspired by Matt's deep dedication and passion for this field; he has spent many years tirelessly devoted to travelling, learning, practicing and educating in various aspects of Permaculture Design, Natural Building and Community Building work. Matt carries a strong sense of integrity, and I am sure his deep care and commitment will serve him well in his work serving others through the creation of intelligent and integrated systems."
