Matt has always loved music, and has been singing publicly since a child. During his High School years he sang with a number of different groups for school as well as his local church. He also participated and won a number of State vocal High School competitions.
Matt attended Pacific Coast Baptist Bible College in San Dimas, CA from 1995 to 1998, where he sang as a soloist as well as with two different quartets.
After college, he moved back to his home state of Washington and married his wife, Jaime, in the Summer of 1999. Since that time, the Lord has blessed them with two girls - Danielle ('01) and Alexandra ('03). Matt loves to spend time with his family, and makes it a priority to invest in them.
In July, 2023, Matt and his family started a new chapter in their lives by moving to Wesley Chapel, FL to be closer to family.
Over the years, Matt's love for music has never dissipated. He continues to be involved in his local church and has sung for countless other churches and events over the years. He has released six albums, including his latest, "Walking Through Fire", released in Spring '22.
