Matt Shafer - Citizen of the Day

Matt Shafer moved to Key West five years ago, sight unseen, after a few of his best friend’s convinced him to head south. Originally from Davenport, Iowa, Shafer works at the Conch Farm at the Historic Seaport and said his decision to choose island life over Iowa was the best of his life. When not working, Shafer said he enjoys golf, boating and spending time at Fort Zachary State Park.
