Matt received his two bachelors of science degrees in Athletic Training and Exercise Sports Science from Vanguard University in 2002. He continued his education at Chapman University, receiving his Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2006.
In 2009 Matt founded Change Sports Physical Therapy in Anaheim, CA. For two years, Matt worked closely with the USA Men's and Women's National Indoor Volleyball teams. During his time working with the teams, he performed pre-season screenings, treated injured athletes, and helped cover practices at the Anaheim facility.

Since receiving his Doctorate in Physical Therapy, Matt has developed skills through education courses and working with patients in the areas of injury prediction screenings, SI joint disorders, shoulder rehabilitation, return to sport participation and PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation - I know fancy word)
