Matt grew up on the east coast and was interested in aviation from a young age. Graduating with a degree in IT, and working in the financial industry in New York City, he was never satisfied working in an office environment.  In 2009 he moved to Bend to be closer to the mountains. After taking up a career in public safety, working as a firefighter, EMT, and then in Search and Rescue, in 2017 he decided to follow his passion for aviation. He currently holds a Commercial Single Engine rating, CFI, CFII, as well as complex and high performance endorsements. When he is not at work you can find him climbing, biking, skiing, or just about anything in between.
