Matt is a Job Training Coordinator for a Career and Technical school in Northeast Ohio. In this capacity he assists high school juniors and seniors prepare for competitive employment and post-secondary education options.
Looking for a physical and mental release Matt turned to running and was instantly hooked. He entered numerous half marathons before progressing onto the marathon and ultramarathon distances. By getting out and running near his home, Matt has explored the trails of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, nearby Metroparks, numerous Rails to Trails, and many parts of the Buckeye Trail. When travelling he likes to find different trails and races to run.
Matt enjoys the opportunity to give back and help others. He has volunteered for aid stations and pacing fellow runners. He is extremely proud when others (his students or runners) achieve their goals, create positive thoughts, and feel good about their accomplishments.
