Matt began his education with the intent to become an architect but soon realized he loved the building process even more than the design. He said, “I had worked in construction for many years, you think I would have realized this a little sooner.” He changed his major to art education with a minor in architectural design and found his direction in life.
Teaching now for several years, Matt enjoys the constant connection with art. He can be found in his classroom teaching art as well as creating. “I think for me to be a successful art teacher, I must first be an artist.” He continues to educate beyond the walls of his room, in other classes and the community.
