Matt was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and raised in Oklahoma. He first got involved in Mexico Crossroads Missions as a volunteer in 2009, which sparked an interest in construction ministries. He attended Ozark Christian College from 2011 to 2014 and has worked as a teaching pastor and concrete mason. In 2017 the Mexico field entered a transitional period, and Matt began filling the role of Project Manager. His favorite part of working with CrossRoads is teaching volunteers new skills and helping construction-minded people see the difference they can make in service to the Kingdom.
