Matt grew up in Flint, Michigan enjoying the breath-taking scenery and high quality H20. At an early age Matt began playing hockey quickly transitioning into the goalie position. Matt would go on to play for his high school and soon after spending a season in Ontario, Canada playing junior hockey. With great misfortune his playing career was cut short during this season. Matt then went on to attend college at Montana State University in the great city of Bozeman, Montana. It is here that Matt became heavily involved in horseback riding and hunting. Following a successful couple of years in Montana, Matt ventured into Dallas, Texas. Braving the chiggers and extreme heat that was Texas, Matt would spend his time hunting and fishing while making lifelong friends in the process. Unfortunately, Texas would not be where Matt would call home eventually returning to Michigan to enjoy his younger brother’s high school and collegiate sport activities. Though time in Michigan was enjoyable, Matt would eventually find his way back to Bozeman where he currently enjoys his horse, Rose. Matt can still be found bird hunting with his pointer Hazel and occasionally playing hockey in the winter.
