Matt is from Cardston, Alberta, Canada. Did you say Canada?!? Yes, that’s right, we also know it as America’s Big Red Hat. From this harsh barren wasteland known as Canada, he wandered many great lands by dogsled (this may be somewhat exaggerated) until he crossed over the border to Helena, Montana at the age of 16. This is where he finished up high school and soon afterwards migrated south to start college in Southern Utah.
Matt is a computer nut. He’s always had an uncanny knack for electronics and understands them better than most people. Matt finished his Bachelors from Dixie State in CIT (emphasizing in VT), and later earned a Masters of Information Systems (emphasizing in E-Commerce) graduating Summa Cum Laude from Dakota State University. Currently he is working on his Doctorate of Information Systems (emphasizing in Information Assurance) from DSU and hopes to finish it up as soon as he can. Apart from geek-speak, he also speaks fluent Spanish and Canadian English which pretty much consists of an “eh?” at the end of all his sentences. He also has over 14 years of experience in the IT industry and continues to work full-time teaching at Dixie State University in the CIT department. His family consists of a lovely wife, two cute daughters (12 & 9), and two rambunctious sons (7 & 4).
Due to his abnormal height, you can spot Matt about 1⁄2 a mile away as he towers over trees and houses. Although he may be freakishly tall, he can still shred up the ski slopes like nobody’s business at Brian Head each winter. During the summer months, he may be found launching off the slick rock on his mountain bike or hiking/repelling the nearby slot canyons. He loves the outdoors and all that Southern Utah has to offer, and now considers St. George to be his permanent home.
If you ever have an opportunity to take a class from him, do so. You will work harder than you ever imagined, learned more than you ever thought you could, and enjoy every second of it…… eh?
