Although originally from Iowa, one of Matt’s life goals was to move to a state where he would rarely – if ever – see snow or long periods of freezing temperatures. He was successful in that goal and currently lives in Orlando, Florida, with his wife Anna, his son Caleb, and his daughter Brooke.
Matt earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Management Information Systems, with a minor in Computer Information Systems, from the University of Northern Iowa.
