Who We Are

Garrett Sparks founded the Sparkgrass Community during the 2004 election cycle.

Geoff Barnes, Matt Pepper, Matt Zuckerman, and Garrett were all medical students at the University of Michigan. Kyle Potter grew up in a neighboring county in rural northeastern Kentucky with Garrett.

Geoff, future cardiologist and likely leader in the LGBT movement, graduated from Washington University with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. He's an Internal Medicine PGY1 at the University of Michigan

Matt Pepper graduated from Duke University with a double major in Electrical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. He's now a pediatrics intern back at Duke.

Kyle maintains his theology-rich blog, Vindicated. He graduated from Georgetown College with a degree in History, and is back in Lexington working on his thesis for an M.Th. from Oxford.

Garrett graduated from the University of Kentucky with degrees in Biology and English. He's also working on his masters in clinical research before he graduates from medical school and runs off somewhere to do a residency in psychiatry.

Matt Zuckerman graduated from the University of Arizona with degrees in Microbiology and Creative Writing. He's an Emergency Medicine intern at Brown, and his wife is an astrophysicist. For real.
