Matt earned a bachelors degree in Communication and Masters in Education from the University of Southern Maine, just an hour from where he grew up.
After spending most of his childhood as a “band geek” his athletic interests began on the back of a horse where he spent several years competing in eventing, an equestrian triathlon, and then in the breed of miniature horses. He competed at a local and regional level and was lucky enough to qualify for the American Eventing Championships, and compete the miniature horses at the national and world level. In 2009 he started running on a quest to lose weight, and has never looked back.
Matt started CrossFit in 2014 after buying a groupon on a whim in hopes of increasing his running speed and stamina. It was the best decision he could have made. Since starting at BCCF, he has gotten both stronger and faster. He has a passion for endurance and regularly competes in road races, triathlons, and obstacle races.
Matt has worked with youth for many years as a swim coach, horseback riding instructor, teacher, and camp director. He is excited to launch the the CrossFit Kids and Endurance programs at BCCF and a has a personal goal of converting some of the running haters to running lovers!
