Matt is a Colorado native, with his father's side going back to the early 1900's. Spending time around his 3 brothers, Matt naturally developed a competitive nature. Between football, swimming, soccer.... or about every sport for that matter, a lot of time was spent playing sports or involved in some form of competition. Late in his elementary school years, his parents got involved in vintage car racing with a 1960 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite. It was out at the track where a friend brought a dirt bike that Matt first learned to ride. Just like almost everyone else in the industry, it was the dirt bike that hooked him in. At 21, Matt started working at a Harley-Davidson, Honda, Polaris, Yamaha dealership during college. He spend 8 years at the dealership through sales, assistant sales manager and finance. Matt worked with a number of the current Garage Composite trainers as the dealership regularly hired them out to raise the level of the staff. Matt joined up officially with Garage Composites a little over a year ago, focused mainly on F&I in dealership training and workshops. Set to get married in April 2017, Matt and his Fiance, Brenna live in Henderson, CO, just north east of Denver. They run a real estate business and are active in the fitness community.
