Born in San Antonio, TX, but raised in Saint Louis, MO, Matt attended Chaminade College Preparatory High School and went on to earn a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Creighton University as well as a Masters in Counseling from Webster University. Since Matt did not begin running competitively until after college, Matt does not have the impressive running resume possessed by most of his teammates. It was running alongside these accomplished runners that gave Matt the confidence that he could have success in the running, despite being a late comer to the sport. For the past three years, Matt has been training under the guidance of Ryan Bak. Matt has achieved success at distances ranging from the 5000M to the half marathon. Matt’s current focus is on qualifying for the Olympic Trials in the marathon.
