founder & ceo
“The entire drive behind the conception of the company, is my desire to firstly protect children and pregnant women from EMF radiation.”
Matt Landman, owner and CEO, was inspired to create this clothing and accessory line when he saw the need for protection of pregnant women and newborn children. This combined with his own EMF sensitivities, gave rise to the vision of creating a brand that encompassed protecting both infants and adults, through protective gear. From hats, to underwear, to hooded sweatshirts, to maternity aprons and cell phone faraday pouches, Spero will offer the full spectrum of stylish, comfortable, armor for the modern world.
As a humanitarian, Matt says we need this protection awareness immediately, especially for the children, newborns and pregnant mothers. As an activist, Matt Landman sees the need for Hope in the area of EMF radiation and 5G dangers. As an entrepreneur, Matt sees an untapped market that needs our help and even invites competition to fuel innovation and style in the EMF shielding clothing market.
My name is Matt Landman, and this is how I first learned about EMF radiation and also the story of how I developed mild Electro Sensitivity. I have learned of the dangers of non-ionizing radiation and because of my journey, I will provide a clothing option for those who are seeking protection from EMF / RF Radiation.
In January of 2017, I relocated to a new home on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia, Canada. I intended to settle in and finish producing the documentary Frankenskies, and focus on planning upcoming conferences I was hosting. At this time, I was an activist, though a shift to include awareness surrounding EMF radiation was about to abruptly occur. There I was, in one of the most beautiful places on earth to rejuvenate myself and work creatively on activism. However, two weeks of sleeping in my new room I started to realize I was in duress. I was slowly losing my ability to get any substantial sleep and I experienced an electrical feeling in my hands when I used my smart phone. I started to feel fatigued with the final straw being a series of heart palpitation experiences that were new and abnormal to me. I had been in the room now for 2 months and I casually mentioned my experience to my landlord. With honest naivety she said to me, “Well, maybe it’s that smart meter they just installed…” Until that moment, the words ‘smart meter’ and electromagnetic frequencies and their potential dangers were not on my radar.
Suffice it to say, I learned, and I learned a lot and quick. The smart meter measured a mere 3 linear feet from where my head rest as I slept in my bed. For 60 days I had been exposed to enough non-ionizing radiation to make me permanently sensitive to this type of radiation. Specifically, I experience heart palpitations and heart pains in an environment of high EMFs. The cumulative impacts of living and sleeping next to a smart meter forced me to develop an in depth understanding of Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF).
In 2018 I moved to Sedona, Arizona where I thankfully would opt out of having a smart meter and traded in my smartphone for an older slider phone (which gives off minimal radiation in comparison to most phones). There I witnessed infrastructure development underway in order to launch the next generation of cell phone technology known as 5G. This small town, which currently only has 3 major cell towers, will be upgrading in a mandatory 5G deployment where Arizona will be the first to go statewide. The town of 3 cell towers will be upgrading to 24 new cell towers with hundreds of small cell towers built through neighborhoods. I spoke at city hall when the topic finally met committee and I was told, “their hands were tied” and that human health impacts cannot be considered in this mandated deployment of new untested technology.
Now I own a couple EMF /RF (Radio Frequency) Radiation Meters which I highly recommend getting one for yourself (many options, but they all work). This invisible soup of radiation surrounds us on a daily basis and cumulative exposure has been shown to impact human health. Knowing what invisible radiation is in your environment brings you knowledge and then empowers you to mitigate and minimize impacts. Having your own EMF meter will change your life. As 5G nationwide deployment is looming, radiation levels are set to rise, and I personally refuse to be subjected to harmful levels of radiation. I especially do not want to see children and pregnant women in this environment unprotected. As an activist, I hope to embody a solution-based awareness approach thus my desire to offer EMF protective clothing to people who want the option of radiation protection.
