Personnel Profile: Matt Gray

Matt Gray is lead lobbyist for Capital Alliance. A jack of all trades, this former legislative staffer now divides his time between nuclear physics, mentoring and lobbying for the adult film industry.

Could you explain what your job is here and how you became a lobbyist?

I left the Legislature after 12 years. I was the deputy chief of staff to Senator Vasconcellos, who retired. I was looking around at whose office I might want to go work for and decided that it was time to spread my wings and go out into the lobbying field and see how I could do there.
