Matt was born in Nebraska, where he spent the first 18 years of his life. After high school, Matt moved to Colorado to attend Art College and lived in Denver for 20 years. Matt met his lovely wife, a traveling nurse from Connecticut, in 2002. They moved to Oahu in 2008 where they had their first son, Finley. Since then, God has done some significant work in their lives and has blessed Matt and Andrea with five beautiful, highly-creative children.

Matt helps promote the events and ministries around One Love Kaka’ako and Windward. Additionally, Matt utilizes his God-given ability to spread the Good News of the Gospel.

Matt loves the story of the Prodigal Son, and Isaiah 52:7 which reads: “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings Good News of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, ‘Your God reigns.’”
