In his spare time, Matt enjoys doing CrossFit, playing guitar, board and video games, exploring L.A.'s amazing food scene and trying all the craft beer California has to offer, catching any games he can involving his beloved Patriots, Red Sox or Syracuse Orange, and exploring the West Coast and the world with his wife and their two Shepherd dogs, Hazel the German and Duncan the Australian.
