A little about Matt:

I was born and raised in Akron, OH where I attended Akron Public Schools. I am a graduate of Buchtel High School 2002 where I earned a college scholarship in athletics through the game of basketball. After a brief career professionally in basketball, I pursued a career in coaching/teaching.

I have worked in education as a professor at Ohio Christian University and higher education in admissions for Radford University/The University of Akron, in addition to working in college athletics. I am a husband and a father of three.

I love family hikes, bike rides, fishing, and golf. I am passionate and committed to working with our youth in finding their purpose and developing a game plan to execute their goals.
