Born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Matt moved to Toledo with his family in 1987. He is a Whitmer graduate and an Eagle Scout. For his Eagle Project, he took a group of kids from The Ability Center camping at Camp Miakonda for a weekend. Matt also attended Camp Cricket in the early 1990′s. He absolutely loves sports and his favorite teams include the Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Tigers, Detroit Pistons, Green Bay Packers, Jeff Gordon and, because he likes watching Tiger Woods, golf. He recently took up golf and Putt-Putt. Matt loves to boogie board in the ocean off Florida and also enjoys the coasters at Cedar Point and Busch Gardens.
Matt also enjoys hiking, and has backpacked Philmont Scout Ranch, New Mexico, the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, and Yosemite. Matt says, “I love my job at The Ability Center and enjoy talking sports with my friends and fellow staff members.”
