On March 9, 2011, Matt Collura suffered a traumatic brain injury in a snowboarding accident. As he gradually awoke from his coma and began a long, challenging road to recovery, his friends and family said “If anyone can make it through this, it’s Matt.”

And they were right. Over the past 3+ years the same dedication that drove his 4 1/2 minute mile time in high school track and helped him survive rigorous academic programs at Boston College and in the NJIT master’s program for architecture, has driven his remarkable recovery.
