Matthew (Matt) is a son of the Northwest, born and raised in Seattle, Washington. Growing up he participated in many sports and outdoor pursuits, and thanks to several injuries came into contact with Physical Therapy. Attending undergraduate at University of Portland, he studied Biology and Chemistry, but quickly realized working with people was far preferable to being in a lab all day. Deciding to shift focus, Matt worked several years as a kayak and SUP instructor before attending Touro University Nevada. There he achieved his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in the summer of 2020.
Outside of work, Matt continues to enjoy the sports that brought him into the profession, participating in local Lacrosse, swimming and cross country running competitions. Matt enjoys paddling the waters of Oregon and Washington, fishing, and hiking. An avid sci-fi reader, his ultimate dream is to one day write a space saga in the spirit of Herbert, Asimov, and Simmons.
