Matty is from Richmond, Virginia, which is also where his parents met while playing pick-up ultimate. He began playing himself in the spring of 2014 through Richmond Ultimate pick-up games and spring and summer leagues. He started practicing with Richmond Floodwall in 2015 and has continued ever since, while also playing for Team Israel U20 from 2015-2017. In the fall of 2016 he began attending Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina where he now captains the Alien Mountain Nomads.
Matty first attended Camp UP as an LIT in 2015, and instantly fell in love with the people and the environment. He returned as a Lead LIT in 2016 and again as a head coach in 2017, but remains involved in the LIT program as part of the NA LIT Committee. He hopes to continue as a part of the UP family for years to come.
